About this webinar

Assessment Tools: The essential ingredients
When it comes to baking a chocolate cake, you wouldn’t forget the chocolate would you?

Similarly, when it comes to creating assessments, there are a couple of key ingredients we cannot afford to miss adding to the mix.

This session presented by Michelle Charlton will talk about the key components required for quality assessment tools, how to combine them to achieve the right consistency, and the processes required to review and test the batch for a sweet result.

Key topics covered within webinar

  • The difference between an assessment instrument and an assessment tool
  • Ideal characteristics of an assessment tool
  • How to apply assessment characteristics in various assessment methodologies
  • Confirming the developed product is going to meet the needs for which it is intended
