Choosing The Right Assessments For Your Students

(9 Hours) Assessment and assessing students is a key component of all effective educational programs, and often a critical component to student learning. While it is often equated with a traditional test given at the end of a unit, assessments and their importance goes well beyond that. This training is the second in a series of three that will go through the three stages of planning using the backwards design method.
