Formative Assessment:  Deepening Understanding

Increase your knowl­edge and dis­cover best-​practice meth­ods in For­ma­tive Assess­ment. Dis­cover a range of meth­ods for pro­vid­ing stu­dents with mean­ing­ful, inter­ac­tive feedback.


Designing Performance Assessments

This course makes con­nec­tions between stu­dent moti­va­tion and types of assess­ment used in the class­room. It also cov­ers how to unpack learn­ing stan­dards and bench­marks, so that all assess­ment yields infor­ma­tion about stu­dent progress and mas­tery of instruc­tional goals. Per­for­mance assess­ment can be designed in a mul­ti­tude of ways, in which both stu­dents and teach­ers can work together to deter­mine the best prod­uct or per­for­mance to exem­plify stu­dent under­stand­ing, knowl­edge, and abil­ity to use what they’ve learned.


Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom

This course is designed for edu­ca­tors who are inter­ested in learn­ing more about how assess­ment in a dif­fer­en­ti­ated class­room can assist teach­ers in pro­mot­ing stu­dent learn­ing. The course uses the ASCD book, Assess­ment and Stu­dents Suc­cess in a Dif­fer­en­ti­ated Class­room by Carol Ann Tom­lin­son and Tonya R. Moon, for its main read­ings, along with arti­cles and video mate­r­ial that focus on a par­tic­u­lar module’s topic. Each mod­ule also con­tains a choice of appli­ca­tion tasks that will help you use key con­cepts and prac­ti­cal strate­gies found in that module.
