Why should the fun stop when it’s time for assessment? Learning is becoming more playful and student-centered, but assessment has not kept up. Until now! Embedding assessment techniques into playful learning experiences can make students feel comfortable, elicit authentic evidence of skill mastery, and provide actionable information to teachers. In this workshop you will try out some examples of playful assessments, and play around with adapting these ideas to your own teaching.
