This seminar explores the relationship between assessment and learner motivation. It begins by looking at some of the challenges that teachers face when conducting formative and summative assessment of their learners. Drawing on studies from primary and secondary general education, it outlines some of the ways that assessment can have a negative effect on learners’ motivation while, at other times, it can be used as part of the motivational toolkit. It then focuses on the relationship between assessment and learning and outlines how Learning Oriented Assessment can provide motivational opportunities for learners. Finally, it examines the kind of feedback that is likely to benefit students and looks at practical examples of how this feedback can be structured.
