AEA-Europe Online Conference 2021 – Formative assessment at Junior Cycle

Professor Damian Murchan co-presented a paper at AEA-Europe 2021 with Dr. Jillian Kellough, Office of Schools, Diocese of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The paper explored teachers’ and students’ perspectives and use of formative assessment in four subjects at Junior Cycle. The study identified various assessment features considered as helpful or unhelpful in class and concluded that effective formative assessment requires a cultural change and mindset shift amongst both teachers and students.

The AEA-Europe Online Conference replaced the 2021 Annual Conference due to be held in Dublin from 3rd to 6th November, co-hosted by Trinity College and the Educational Research Centre, Drumcondra. It is intended to hold the next conference in Dublin in November 2022 instead.
