Evaluation and assessment of transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge
Module A : Strasbourg, France - 20-23 October 2015 – Module B - Mosta, Malta - 24-27 may 2016
The current trainer training course will focus on how teaching programs and courses can be evaluated
and how learning progress and outcomes with regard to transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge -
TASKs - can be assessed. The course will explore and help us to respond to questions such as: Were the
expected outcomes reached? To what extent were the TASK components developed? Do we have a
reliable and useful picture of where each student stands? Have individual students in my class developed
their awareness of where they are at in relation to the expected outcomes? What can I as a teacher do
differently to better support the learning process and recognise progress?
➢ participants will be able to recognise and explain key values of the CoE and Pestalozzi programme with regard to education
➢ participants will be introduced to Pestalozzi Programme resources and assessment tools and be able to work with Transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge - TASKS as outcomes of their activities
➢ participants will become aware of the importance of the development and evaluation and assessment of transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge
➢ participants will get to know and discuss about different methods of assessment and evaluation: self-assessment; peer-assessment, formative assessment
➢ participants will have an opportunity to reflect on: the methods and tools of assessment and evaluation with regard to TASks
➢ participants will be willing and enabled to develop and pilot training materials and assessment tools in their contexts
