Curriculum and assessment: closing the gap

Jane Weston, Martin Murley
Conference Co-convenors
Curriculum Corporation's 12th annual conference, Curriculum and Assessment: Closing the Gap, will examine the relationship between curriculum and assessment and propose that there is a need to close the gap. How can assessment sit more effectively inside the curriculum? How can it be integrated into good pedagogy, feeding back continuously into student learning, rather than being predominantly something that teachers do to students at the end of their learning? How can we close the achievement gap between social groups?
