Assessment is a complicated task that is situated at the center of the learning process in schools. Research tells us much about what best practices should be but the practical application/implementation in the classroom leads to many questions. This session will explore ways to make assessment more accurate and more supportive of student learning by applying the research to the everyday classroom. We will consider the role of well defined standards and proficiency levels as a means to approach standards-based feedback or grading, the role of formative assessment in the assessment process, and ways to create more authentic projects that demonstrate learning in the context of 21st century skills. The role of technology in various aspects of assessment will also be considered.
