A team from the Assessment, Curriculum and Technology Research Centre delivered a plenary panel during the 10th International Conference on Teacher Education (ICTED) held on August 23-25, 2018 at the Seda Vertis North, Quezon City, Philippines.
Dr Esther Care, Pam Robertson, and Xerxes de Castro talked about how targeted assessments can support inclusive education by looking at the current capabilities of each learner, serving as bases in developing instructional strategies. Dr Care shared the potential of using a diagnostic instructional tool among Students With Additional Needs (SWANs) to target reporting and instruction. Ms. Robertson spoke about targeting students in Science by using assessment to provide information about what learners can do using skills descriptions and scores. Mr. de Castro ended the presentation explaining the steps and importance of language adaptation process to eliminate errors that can be attributed to the language used in assessment tools. ACTRC takes this kind of opportunity to share relevant research findings most importantly to classroom teachers who are at the forefront of providing quality and inclusive education.
