DescriptionThe triumvirate of teaching, learning and assessment should be equal, but often teacher training and teacher continued professional development under emphasise teachers’ development of classroom assessment. In this key note, I argue that there by concentrating on improving six elements of assessment literacy can catalyse chemistry teachers to improve their understanding and application of classroom assessment. The six elements are: skills in assessing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills; knowledge of common mistakes, errors and misconceptions; interpretation of student responses and appropriate interventions; knowledge of the requirements of statutory assessment; application of exam technique and critical engagement with assessment theory, policy and practice. For each of these elements I will draw on relevant education research and practical examples for chemistry teachers to use to improve their assessment literacy and therefore improve student progress.
