Response to QQI’s Paper ‘Assessment of Learners and Learning’

Tungumál: EN

Posted by Laura Austen-Gray

An event titled 'Assessment in Further Education' was organised by EPALE Ireland and ECVET Ireland (Erasmus+ programmes managed in Ireland by Léargas), and the Further Education Network.

It took place on 10 October 2018 in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin. In addition to plenary addresses, including an input from Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI), the event facilitated group discussions on the consultation questions posed by QQI’s Green Paper on Assessment of Learners and Learning.

Those attending the event noted that the Green Paper is not presented as a draft policy but is rather intended to stimulate discussion. In this spirit, the points arising from the group discussions have been captured as a response to the Green Paper; they do not represent a consensus response within individual groups or amongst those attending, but rather an account of the views expressed. As a result, direct quotations are often used and a small number of examples to support points raised have been highlighted. Furthermore, the views expressed do not necessarily represent the views of the Further Education Network, Léargas, EPALE or ECVET.
