The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority has developed the Guide to Formative Assessment Rubrics with experts from the University of Melbourne’s Assessment Research Centre to assist teachers to use formative assessment practices in Victorian classrooms.
The guide provides advice to teachers about how to develop formative assessment rubrics linked to the Victorian Curriculum F–10. This advice will assist teachers to identify the actual learning level of each student based on evidence of what the student knows and can do, and to understand what each student is ready to learn next.
The guide includes four parts:
- Part 1: Describing a learning continuum
- Part 2: Developing a formative assessment rubric
- Part 3: Collecting, interpreting and using evidence to plan for teaching and learning
- Part 4: Formative assessment rubrics in practice.
