If students need to struggle to learn, why would we encourage them to use AI? This session will explore the potential impact AI has on the design and facilitation of assessments. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy and research on productive struggle as our foundations, we’ll explore ways AI can augment student learning and can make assessments more impactful, not less. We’ll experiment with revising current assessments and imagine what new assessments AI might make possible. This is an interactive, participatory session, so participants should expect to engage in breakout activities where they discuss and share their work with colleagues.


Participants will:

  • Learn how to define “rigor” in the context of research on productive struggle and effective assessment
  • Explore AI’s potential to assist students at various stages of the learning process
  • Practice revising and/or creating assessments to reflect an understanding of AI
