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 SLAR meetings.
Students will complete at least three citizenship actions as part of their learning across the three strands of the CSPE short course. Students are expected to create an Action Record for one of these as their Classroom-Based Assessment. A particular purpose of the Classroom-Based Assessment will be to facilitate developmental feedback to students during their engagement with the task and at the end of the process. The Classroom-Based Assessment for the CSPE short course can be completed in second or third year.
The Classroom-based Assessment can be produced in written, digital, visual or audio formats and it may be supported through the use of an interview or presentation.
