QoC Talk: Struggle and Success
Inspiring stories of transforming assessment from across Europe
The event “Struggle and Success: Inspiring stories of transforming assessment from across Europe” presents our new book Assessment as Dialogue
In this event we present our new book together with our partners the Learning for Well-being Foundation and the Hungarian Waldorf Federation. The book was written in the framework of a joint Erasmus+ project and includes 20 good-practice examples of assessment of pupils from the transition from kindergarten to school until leaving secondary school. These practices are collected from different educational backgrounds.
The strong message of hope communicated in the book — around the difficult issues associated with the assessment of pupils in schools — is that change is not only possible but it is already happening in classrooms and schools. Evidence is provided in the twenty narratives presented, from twelve diverse European countries.
This event will illustrate with real-life examples how evaluation in education can change for the better and how enhanced well-being can be demonstrated across the learning community constituted by a school. Representatives from four of the good practices collected in the book will share their experiences of struggle and success and will collaborate with the audience to identify key factors that can help bring about transformation.
The four good practices are:
- Starting assessment in early childhood to support learning (Romania)
- Interweaving formative and standardised assessment (Netherlands)
- Leaving school with written reports as an alternative to grades (Denmark)
- A second chance for early school leavers (Hungary).
Our event therefore fits well into this year’s annual theme “assessment and wellbeing”.
