Assessment Strategies: One Final Word

Marlys WeaverStoesz

Throughout this month, we have explored strategies for incorporating authentic and formative assessments into daily practice.  Our videos have featured math, language arts, and collaborative assessment practices from a span of grade levels.

Today’s video movingly depicts the aim of all teachers:  graduating seniors who are ready to take on the world, as evidenced by a culminating “defense of deeper learning.”

Whether one teaches kindergarten or high school, all educators will appreciate how the teachers and students featured in this video demonstrate the power of many formative assessments culminating into this final articulation of deeply personal, while also academic, learning.

You might want to have a tissue nearby, especially towards the end.
