The 21st Century Classroom

Transforming Assessments for the 21st Century Learner

A Brief History of Assessment.mp4

How can we change the way we assess to meet the demands of the 21st Century Learner?

Education is rapidly changing...the way learners learn, the standards we are expected to teach them, the skills students need to develop, classroom designs and the tools students are using. So the way we assess students must too be altered to meet the demands of changing education and the new learners we have in our classrooms.

Goals for today:

  • Get you to start thinking about a variety of ways to create assessments both formative and summative
  • Provide you with some tools to make data collection on student learning quick and easy
  • Discuss ideas for student portfolios
