Assessing Students' Learning.

This session addresses two questions that are central to social studies assessment: How do we know students are learning? and How do we know our teaching is effective? Because assessment often provides only a snapshot of learning, social studies teachers need a variety of tools and strategies to gauge students' knowledge.


To help you refine your assessment skills, in this session you will:

  • Explore the meaning, types, and uses of assessment.
  • Learn how assessment strategies can be used effectively in different learning contexts.
  • Apply criteria to analyze assessment strategies.
  • Apply session content and strategies to your own teaching.

Learning Goals

At the end of this session you will be able to:
