So, you have integrated technology in your classrooms. Is it leading to improved learning? What does assessment look like in a Digital Age classroom of Web 2.0 integration and multimodal projects? How do we distinguish between higher-order thinking and "bells-and-whistles"? In this session we will explore the role of a "logic model" and backward-design principles in developing effective "Assessment 2.0" strategies. We will look at techniques and rubrics that help establish a clear relationship between project goals and skill benchmarks. We will also focus on the critical role of formative assessments and timely intervention. Furthermore, we will also examine how a 2.0 assessment differs from a traditional assessment. A fundamental goal is to identify characteristics of effective assessments that link to and measure student mastery of worthwhile learning goals.
