Self-assessment tool trial with AITSL

Date posted: 15 October 2012
AITSL is developing a Self-Assessment Tool to be used by teachers in a range of contexts. The tool will provide teachers at various stages in their career with the ability to assess their performance against the National Professional Standards for Teachers.

The SAT will support teachers at all career stages to reflect upon their strengths and identify areas for future development in accordance with the National Professional Standards for Teachers.

Once finalised, the SAT will assist all teachers with reflection on their own practice, planning for professional learning activities and as a basis for constructive discussions with colleagues to improve teaching.  The SAT will provide the scaffolding required to foster effective professional conversations with coaches and mentors.  It will also support aspirants for certification at Highly Accomplished or Lead career stages to assess their readiness to apply.

Trialling the SAT items will take approximately 30 minutes.  Participants will have the opportunity to test the items within the SAT which will immediately provide stimulus to reflect upon their practice, however, they will not receive a report upon completion of the SAT trial.  All participants can enter the draw to win an iPad.
