ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Research shows a clear link between student motivation, meaningful learning, and authentic assessment. This online workshop will support teachers who want to develop a performance-based assessment to use in a virtual learning environment. Through discussion and practice, participants will explore ways to create meaningful and engaging online assessments.
Key questions that this workshop will investigate include:
- What are the core skills we want students to demonstrate?
- What are your learning goals you want to assess?
- What is performance-based assessment, and how can you do it online?
- How can rubrics increase student engagement, autonomy, and learning?
Come with last year's final exam in hand or your ideas for this year's test, and get ready to shift how you assess. This workshop is intended for middle and high school teachers.
