Developing Effective Assessment Tasks in a Proficiency-Based Learning System

Webinar Date: April 7, 2015

Presenters: David Ruff, executive director + Reed Dyer, senior associate + Becky Wilusz, senior associate

As educators have begun to implement proficiency-based learning systems, they have realized the need to develop assessments that accurately measure student learning, promote personalization, and deliver trustworthy data—not an easy set of deliverables.

Building upon the previous GSP webinar, this webinar will present a model for teachers to first identify evidence that  demonstrates learning in alignment with identified scoring criteria, and then create assessment tasks through which students can deliver this evidence. We will show how this model can be applied to different content areas and  formulated to promote personalization for student interest. This approach will provide a design model that can be applied to any kind of assessment task..
