Topic 3: Assessment for learning: using COMPASS© to help students develop competency in speech therapy

15 June 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm HKT

Session 1: Introduction to using COMPASS© to support competency development
Are you new to COMPASS© or haven’t had an opportunity to learn how it has been designed to support the development of competency or would like a refresher? Through participating in this session you will develop your understanding of the design of COMPASS© and how you can use it to help your students successfully develop their competency.

Session 2: Advancing your skills in using COMPASS© assessment FOR learning
Have you used COMPASS© with students or attended Session 1? Participate in this session to explore in more detail the differences between assessing FOR learning versus assessment OF learning. We will identify why assessment FOR learning is critical for developing future colleagues who are lifelong learners capable of providing quality services. We will explore strategies to use COMPASS© to support this process. There will be a question and answer session at the end.
