Associate Professor, Australian Catholic University
During the project, Lenore Adie was Associate Professor in Teacher Education and Assessment and Senior research Fellow at the Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education (ILSTE), Australian Catholic University (ACU). Her research focuses on these two interconnected strands of investigation, in particular, assessment in initial teacher education, and teacher assessment and judgement-making practices, including moderation of student work. Lenore currently holds an Adjunct Professor role with ACU.
Lenore’s research examines the policy and practice contexts of a range of assessment processes. She has partnered with schools and education authorities in these endeavours. Lenore was the Lead Investigator on the ARC Linkage Project (LP180100046) Improving teacher assessment capability using scaled annotated exemplars of achievement standards in online moderation in collaboration with assessment and measurement specialists, and worked with teachers across two Australian states and with state, independent and Catholic education authorities.
Lenore’s current body of writing exemplifies her two research strands and includes research on changing school assessment culture, reviews into the use of data walls in schools and the use of learning progressions to inform teaching and assessment practices, and the introduction of teaching performance assessments into initial teacher education. Recent books include Teaching performance assessments as a cultural disruptor in initial teacher education: Standards, evidence and collaboration (Wyatt-Smith, Adie & Nuttall, 2021, Springer), and Professionalizing teacher education: Performance assessment, standards, moderation, and evidence (Wyatt-Smith, Adie, Haynes, & Day, 2022, Routledge).
