This 2019 Oxford University Centre for Educational Assessment lecture is delivered by Professor Nancy Perry.
She is the Dorothy Lam Chair in Special Education and Professor of Educational and Counselling Psychology and Special Education at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada. The talk is followed by a discussion led by OUCEA Director Associate Professor Therese N. Hopfenbeck. Self-regulated Learning (SRL) describes proactive and productive approaches to learning that enable learners to respond flexibly and adaptively to meet personal and social learning goals. Efforts to support students' SRL pair well with 21st Century learning goals and 'assessment for learning' (AfL) goals. In this talk, Prof Perry describes research that both advances knowledge and improves practice concerning SRL. Specifically, she discusses collaborations with primary school teachers to design and implement curriculum-linked, formative assessments that prompt and assess children's use of SRL processes.
