A cross-University collaboration has been launched to raise the profile of learning about assessment.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Assessment and Examinations has been created by Cambridge Assessment and the Faculty of Education. A Master’s level course, it is designed for people working in assessment who want to enhance their knowledge and understanding of assessment and examinations.
Tim Oates, Cambridge Assessment’s Group Director of Assessment Research and Development, said the course would cater for the increasing need for understanding about qualifications.
“Assessment is a challenging and rapidly-changing field - we wanted to design provision appropriate for both educationalists wishing to rapidly acquire enhanced knowledge of assessment theory and practice, and for assessment specialists wishing to update and develop their understanding," he said.
“Cambridge Assessment is extremely pleased to be working with the Faculty of Education - combining the institutions' strengths in assessment, curriculum, and professional development.”
The one-year, part-time course is worth 60 credits at Master’s level (Level 7). It incorporates a mix of online learning and regular day schools, held at the Faculty of Education.
A free drop-in session for anyone who wants to find out more about the new course is being held this Friday. For more details see here
