Assessments are an essential part of teaching and learning, as they allow us to pause, reflect, and plan for the future. By using authentic assessments, where students apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems, we can get a better understanding of what our students truly know. One effective way to create these types of assessments is through the use of the GRASPS model, developed by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe. GRASPS is a powerful tool that supports educators in crafting assessments for your learners.
GRASPS can be useful for planning, organising, and delivering tasks that are engaging, relevant, significant, and challenging for students at all levels of the MYP.
