The challenge of balancing key principles in teacher assessment

Abstract

The Teacher Assessment in Primary Science (TAPS) project is funded by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) and based at Bath Spa Institute for Education. The TAPS team use a Design-Based Research approach, which involves working in partnership with schools in iterative cycles to develop products, with the aim of providing support for valid, reliable and manageable teacher assessment. This paper will explore these key principles and propose a Seesaw model to represent the challenge of balancing the requirements of validity and reliability. The balancing in the Seesaw model is suggested both as a way of conceptualising the difficulties of teacher assessment and of providing starting points for discussion of potential solutions.
