Starting Today
More students are struggling than ever before, and trying something new with our assessments could go a long way in helping all students succeed.

This course is designed for the teacher who wants to build assessments that truly show what students know, understand and can do. We have compiled several strategies to help you modify your already-made assessment into something that can accurately reflect your students' learning even if taken at home. And because we are in such a time where many of our beliefs and practices are being challenged, perhaps we may begin to challenge our thinking on the whole assessment process by looking at several different research theories surrounding the topic.

This course consists of two live Zoom meetings with independent work time to implement the strategies shared in-between, for a total of 5 CTLE hours. There will be opportunities for sharing ideas with others, feedback, self-reflection and planning next steps. We hope this helps to build a community of educators that can provide continued support to its members after the course has ended.
