Reimagining Assessment
Reimagining Assessment

Educators are rethinking the purposes, forms, and nature of assessment. Beyond testing mastery of traditional content knowledge—an essential task, but not nearly sufficient—educators are designing assessment for learning as an integral part of the learning process.

The 2021 Assessment for Learning Conference (May 6-7, 2021) will be the culmination of six months of events and experiences we’re calling “the Assessment for Learning Universe.” Did we choose a space theme because 2020 makes us want to leave Earth? Yes! And…because the magnitude of the questions we face at this moment in history requires us to go WAY above 30,000 feet.

AFL 2021 blurs the line between conference and community of practice. Think of it as a series of missions to escape the gravitational pull of our assumptions and to-do lists so that we can find space for sharing, reflecting, connecting, and imagining. These days, it is both more difficult and more essential than ever to do this.

Our guiding question for this year is:

How will the assessment for learning movement lead us through the crises of the moment to a more just, equitable, and student-centered future of public education?

Visit the Assessment for Learning Conference website to learn more about how AFL 2021 will help us explore this question together!
