Developing Authentic Assessments: Have My Students Learned Anything?
May 13-17, 2013
You’ve designed the assignment, met with students as they worked on it, and now you have the finished product in front of you. The results are not what you expected, and you ask yourself, “Are my students really learning anything?”
If this scenario is even vaguely familiar, this workshop track is for you. We will go through a step-by-step process, starting with student learning outcomes and culminating with assessment tasks and measurement tools.
Through the process, we will answer questions such as “How are my students demonstrating what they have learned?” and “Are their products relevant in the real world?” By the end of the week, you will have developed authentic assessments for use in your class that can answer the question “Have my students learned anything?”
