Session Description
The assessment process of a student’s learning has been the same since the beginning of education: paper-pencil test, scored by the teacher, and the test is given back to the students, and we move on. There is a shift occurring in education towards personalized learning, where student choice and voice are finally audible. Should there be voice and choice in assessments? This session will dig into “the why” and “the how” of alternative assessments in the secondary math setting with time at the end to collaborate and create.
