The primary focus of student-centered assessment is the ability of students to demonstrate their mastery of a topic. The goal of an assessment is not a final grade, but to create a learning experience in which the student is able to clearly communicate and demonstrate what they are learning. By varying the types of assessment offered, students can express themselves in a way that is most comfortable for them.

This workshop is designed for teachers and coaches who want to build understanding around how to design student-centered assessment to support students in demonstrating mastery. This session would be a good fit for any educator, whether they are just beginning to transition to more formative assessment in their classroom, or they are more experienced and want to build ideas around how to incorporate more student-centered assessment in their classroom.
