Summer Reflection: Remodeling Your Approach to Assessment
Watch this NCTE on Air event recorded in June where we highlight innovative approaches to assessment from the stories we’ve collected all spring. Guests Kathryn Mitchell Pierce and Rosario Ordonez-Jasis share concrete activities you can take on to rethink your instructional approach this fall.
Kathryn Mitchell Pierce describes what we’re learning so far in this post on The Answer Sheet blog by Valerie Strauss.
Here is a write-up of this project from Catherine Gewertz at ED Week.
