About the talk:

Inquiry educators are always looking for tools and strategies for ongoing learning and assessment. A rubric is an assessment tool used to evaluate student performance against a series of established criteria and goals. It not only makes expectations explicit, but also gives students a clear sense of what is expected of them, and how these goals can be met.

Regardless of your grade level or curriculum, the ability to critically reflect on a unit and design clear learning objectives is a necessary skill for empowering assessment capable classrooms. Join Mike Matthews, experienced educator and coach, as he unpacks his process for developing clear, student-centred rubrics for authentic assessments. Dive into the what, why and how of rubrics and walk away with tools and resources needed to promote learning and growth in your classrooms.
