[Students] want to believe that every performance they complete, regardless of what that task or product might be, that they're working to get better over time. Assessments are their opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, skill, and understanding.

- Allison Zmuda, education consultant, Understanding by Design


Learning Goals

How do you plan and carry out an assessment that informs both you and your students about their progress? In this session, you'll review relevant research, observe video discussions and classroom examples, and do a culminating activity on planning an effective assessment of student work. At the end of this session, you will better understand how to:
  • design informal (formative) classroom assessments of student performance and progress;
  • design formal (summative) assessments of student performance; and
  • provide feedback to students on their performance that helps them to make progress and understand how to track their progress.
