Welcome to The Assessment Playbook

We hope this Playbook will support K–12 educators as they plan and implement assessments during the school year in order to inform the design of instruction. Effective design and implementation of assessments helps ensure that all students are able to grow and develop as learners—so they are empowered to build on their strengths and improve on areas of challenge. Inspiration for this video series and accompanying Playbook was developed as a way to better understand the gaps in learning that may have occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Understanding "construct relevant" and "construct irrelevant" design elements of assessments
  • Understanding and avoiding construct "irrelevant" design features of assessments that may create barriers
  • Evaluating individual items of an assessment that may be problematic and getting in the way of understanding the student's knowledge

Outstanding information. Clear for new teachers and an excellent review for veteran teachers and explicit explanations for new teachers. 

I love the barrier is not come from students but from the environment.

Mastery Orientated Feedback is great!

Neuroscience of Teaching Methods

It’s a Process: UDL Lesson Planning

As educators become familiar with UDL, they frequently begin by asking "How do I do this?" They need an adaptable process, one that allows them to reflect on their own practice.

About

As educators become familiar with UDL, they frequently begin by asking "How do I do this?" They need an adaptable process, one that allows them to reflect on their own practice. This resource focuses on integrating the UDL principles into best practice by illustrating UDL lesson planning as an adjustable step-by-step process for teaching all learners. The UDL lesson planning process engages educators in six steps: (1) defining clear, S.M.A.R.T. learning goals based on standards, (2) considering the classroom impact of learner variability, (3) determining appropriate, meaningful assessments, (4) infuse UDL into traditional teaching methods and select materials and media that add value, (5) teach and assess, and (6) refine learning through self-reflection. Applicable to all levels, lesson reflection questions and application exercises immediately put UDL into practice.
