Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will be able to identify and implement ways to assess their students that go beyond multiple-choice questions.

Participants will explore student created rubrics, learning contracts, and more that will allow students to reflect on their learning.

Sample projects will be shared that challenge students and allow them to personalize their instruction. For example, using educational videos and Google Draw to create concept maps and have students summarize their thinking using ScreenCastify; using Scratch to code games, presentations, quizzes, and more based on SAMR (substitution, augmentation, modification, and redefinition).
