In this practical course, Dr. Kay Burke shows how to create and use assessment tools that improve instruction (formative assessments) as well as gauge its success (summative assessments), and how to arrive at an effective balance of the two.
Dr. Burke demonstrates how to plan instruction as part of a collaborative team, repacking the Common Core standards and sharing meaningful instructional objectives with students. She provides examples of performance tasks that will motivate students in every grade.
Teachers taking this course will get a first-hand look at checklists, rubrics, and informal assessments in use in actual classrooms -- from second-graders studying shapes to high-school juniors investigating global human rights abuses. Educators will come away with tools and strategies that they can use immediately, making balanced assessment an integral part of their own instruction.
