Transforming Assessment Into Authentic Engagement for 21st Century Learning

By structuring assessments so that they focus more on student questions, educators can move from simply checking for learning to designing for genuine student learning. This concept combined with “desirable difficulties” and the power of authentic assessment offers educators strategies and conceptual tools to empower students to be great learners in the classroom and in the real world. Teaching Channel has partnered with UMass Global to discuss assessment and design best practices to implement in today’s classroom.
