How Do We Know They Know? Formative Assessment in the Classroom

Assessment serves many purposes–from ensuring benchmarks are reached to creating opportunities to customize learning experiences mid-stream. This workshop will concentrate on formative assessments which are themselves learning opportunities, from low-stakes responses to long term project-based works. Attendees will be introduced to a wide variety of techniques (for online, in person, large and small classes) and leave the session with simple strategies for refining their own assessment process.
