John Hattie Lecture – The Future of Measurement

DEAN’S LECTURE SERIES 2011
Professor John Hattie Lecture
The future of measurement
Measurement invades so many aspects of our life, particularly in our schools. Indeed schools are awash with test data. Most of these tests look like those of 50 years ago. During the past ten years a new revolution has been occurring leading to fascinating new ways to think about measurement. These include the use of technologies, changing conceptions of how to assess the qualities of tests, the measurement of progress, assessing cognitive processes and the globalisation of measurement. This lecture will outline this revolution, showing how many of these advances can be included in a reporting engine accessible to teachers. These assessment reports can make learning more visible to the student and the teacher.

    Thanks very much. I read a huge report by the Professor during my recent studies for a training qualification and he’s here in the UK now (late 2012) but – working in the public sector – I’ll never find the £450 price of a ticket. This at least gives me some further personal development and a better idea what I might be missing.
