Jay McTighe has recently released a new resource. The resource is called Core Learning: Assessing What Matters Most and it's available from the School Improvement Network. Click here to check it out.This digital tool includes text, discussion, and interactive video.
The most important outcomes contained in academic standards (such as Common Core, TEKS, etc.) cannot be appropriately assessed using multiple-choice test items—this requires more robust performance measures. In Core Learning: Assessing What Matters Most, author Jay McTighe offers readers a framework for designing standards-aligned classroom assessment tasks that engage students in demonstrating their learning in authentic ways.
This resource is great for both administrators and teachers.
I highly recommend it-- what a great way to start off your teaching and learning for 2014!
