New Assessment, New Instruction

February 27 in Middletown or March 1 in Glen Allen


At its best, the use of performance-based assessment supports students' development of "*the five Cs", while engaging them in interesting and relevant work. How might teachers retool their existing lesson and unit plans to prepare students for these more complex and authentic tasks? In this session, teachers will bring or generate a task and set of criteria that could form the basis of a classroom performance assessment and rubric. With this assessment idea in mind, they will learn, discuss, and design instructional components that support student success on more challenging and complex assignments. 

* The five Cs as identified in Virginia are Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration, and Citizenship.
