About the qualification
Worth 90 credits at Master’s level (Level 7), the transformative assessment qualification is practice-based and designed to directly impact your work as you learn to apply various research methodologies to your professional context. As a student on the course, you'll develop an in-depth understanding of assessment in a supportive academic environment, and benefit from working on small scale enquiries that are relevant to your own professional practice. You'll also learn from other students, and build networks from beyond your specialist areas of expertise.
"I’ve learnt a huge amount on assessment and now have an appreciation of complexities that I didn’t have before. It has impacted on my own use of assessment in the classroom."
The course is designed for all professionals wishing to develop their understanding of educational assessment and its evaluation in their day to day working practice. It may be particularly useful to teachers, examiners and assessors, HE professionals, and those working for awarding organisations, professional institutions, and regulatory authorities.
The qualification is led collaboratively by experts from Cambridge Assessment and the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education, and will lead to a University of Cambridge Postgraduate Advanced Certificate in Educational Studies (PACES).
