Assess FOR Learning with PBL!
Project Based Learning offers multiple opportunities and methods to assess FOR student learning. Standards-based projects and assignments require students to apply knowledge and skills, such as designing a bridge or investigating the water quality of a nearby pond. Students benefit from the feedback of teachers, peers, and outside sources, while clearly defined rubrics help give a fair and consistent evaluation of student work. Beginning with the end in mind, this session will guide participants through the project based learning process to develop and organize a project with matching assessment tools.
