Preparing Teachers to Design Classroom Assessment for Learner Agency – Jill WIllis

Assessment Learning Network, April 12, 2019

Jill Willis, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Education, School of Teacher Education and Leadership, Queensland
University of Technology, Queensland, Australia will present on the topic of, “Preparing Teachers to Design
Classroom Assessment for Learner Agency.” Jill will provide an international perspective on formative
assessment as used by teachers and students daily during instruction and learning. Unlike here in the U.S. where
the routine use of formative assessment practice is limited, teachers in other countries such as Australia, New
Zealand, and Great Britain learn to use such practices as part of their pre-service preparation and are much more
likely to use them routinely in their classrooms. How might Michigan learn from these countries?
