Classroom-Based Assessment

Classroom-Based Assessments are the occasions when the teacher assesses the students in the specific assessment(s) that are set out in the subject or short course specification. Junior cycle short courses will have one Classroom-Based Assessment. Where feasible, teachers of short courses will participate in learning and assessment review meetings. 

Classroom-Based Assessment: Selecting evidence of learning

Each strand of this PE short course includes different kinds of psycho-motor learning experiences and provides opportunities for students to receive developmental feedback as they learn. Students will gather evidence of what they have learned in that particular strand through ongoing assessment during and/or the end of each strand. 

In third year, when they have completed the four strands, students select evidence of their learning in one strand to submit for their Classroom-Based Assessment.

The Classroom-Based Assessment can be presented in written, digital, visual or audio formats and it may be supported in these formats through the use of an interview or presentation.
