Remodeling Your Approach to Assessment

If you missed Wednesday’s #NCTEonAir you can check it out here! Special thanks to Kathryn Mitchell Pierce and Rosario Ordoñez-Jasis for sharing so many insights and ideas. This is a great example of one of the many ways we’re using what we learn from the Assessment Story Project to rethink what assessment really entails. Summer is an important time for educators to relax and rejuvenate but after watching this you’re going to be eager to add remodel to that list.
