Do you want to know more about how we are thinking about feedback? A great place to start is to look at the learning community we are a part of in the Assessment for Learning Project (ALP). See some of the work here in the ALP Milestones Report. By engaging in conversations with groups around the country who are also rethinking assessment, our minds and our philosophies are challenged in how we can authentically assess and provide meaningful feedback to our students.
Then, check out some of the recent articles from around the country on how others are rethinking assessment:
- John Hattie’s research has informed our beginning thinking on feedback loops.
- ASCD thinks about the role of open-ended and multiple-choice questions in classrooms.
- New Hampshire is inspiring Indiana to rethink assessment.
- Can portfolios help us shape the future?
- ASCD highlights different forms of feedback and how they can be used in classrooms.
And then, maybe a Ted Talk from Bill Gates on how teachers need more valuable feedback to improve their craft.
