Our Path Towards Skills Based Assessment

With the changes in the curriculum, there has been a shift in the way that we view assessments. The ripple effect of these changes are felt in all facets of the learning process as we revisit assessment practices to realign with this new focus. We created a summative assessment that is based on a new form of assessment centered on observation, students’ success, and opportunity (collaborative group work with inclusive and equitable levels). Please join us for a discussion about our journey.
