Sport and Rec Community In Practice – Assessment Instruments

This event will be conducted in both a face-to-face and online environment.

The implementation of the revised Sport and Rec syllabus in 2024 provides the perfect opportunity for teachers right across Queensland, regardless of whether you can attend face-to-face, to engage with your peers in navigating the early stages of the implementation, particularly the assessment phase in the lead up to the completion of Semester 1. 

We'll focus on the assessment instruments in this workshop and follow-up on the work of QCAA in establishing a Community in Practice to ensure better consistency in assessments across Queensland teachers.
