Here are three assessment-related resources I read recently that are useful. For more info, you might want to explore A Collection Of “The Best” Lists On Assessment:
The Role of Performance Assessments in Fostering Opportunities for Deeper Learning appeared in Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Performance Assessment.
Assessment – it’s all in our heads is by Andy Tharby. I’m adding it to The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use).
History Lesson: Giving Students Freedom to Create Their Own Projects is by Brison Harvey at Ed Week. One point he makes that I think is particularly intriguing is letting his students develop individualized rubrics for their independent projects. I’m adding it to the same list.
