Summary

Assessment has become a dirty word in education, conjuring up images of anxious students and educators setting aside learning to do test prep. But what if we reimagined what assessment could be? What if assessment supported learning, instead of just driving accountability? What if assessments empowered students to chart their own learning paths, and gave teachers tools that respected and enhanced their professional judgement? Panelists will discuss how innovative educators are reimagining assessments to embrace richer definitions of student success and allow them to demonstrate their learning through multiple, varied forms of evidence—harnessing the power of assessment for good, not evil!
