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.

A new podcast series tells the stories of reimagining assessment.

In this 2Revolutions blog post from December 20, Nicole Falcone introduces a new podcast series from the Assessment for Learning Project. ALP is led by a partnership between the Center for Innovating in Education, NGLC, and 2Revolutions.

But what does rethinking assessment actually, tangibly look like? Education transformation like this can often feel inaccessible to people outside this world, in the language that’s used and the way it’s talked about. But as a journalist and storyteller that has always made me a little nuts — because education and learning is all about people. Our interactions with each other, with ourselves, and with material (digital, physical, reading, writing, creating, making, building). And stories like these are deeply intuitive and whole-hearted and we can all understand them, without a glossary or a decade of experience in ed reform. We just need to make sure we tell them in that way.

We need the stories of reimagining assessment to be accessible and sticky. We need them to be easily shared with friends over dinner or a parent at a school board meeting or grandparents at the park — because that’s what creates a movement.
