Context: What exactly is it?

30 October 2019
ONLINE

The nuances around context of the assessment and assessment contextualisation can be a little confusing at times!

Based on feedback from Velg Training members who have requested this topic, this webinar has been designed to unpack what it means to ensure that assessment instruments include appropriate context.

It will explore the different terminology and definitions relating to the context and conditions of assessment, contextualisation of products vs the activity being assessed and the different contexts that a student may need to demonstrate consistent performance in, to ensure transferability of skills.

Join Carol Hunter to get to the bottom of it all and demystify ‘context’!


Key topics covered within the webinar

  • What is the Context of Assessment?
  • What is Assessment contextualisation?
  • Other terminology and definitions
  • Instruments and 'appropriate' context
  • What context means re: transferability of skills
