This deck is from my workshop at ACTE Career Tech Vision 2013 in Las Vegas titled "Assessment FOR Learning: How Measuring Success DURING Learning Turns Testing Upside Down"
Most students hate taking tests. Most teachers hate giving tests. But a new concept called "AfL" (Assessment FOR Learning) has turned the concept of measurement upside down. Rather than waiting until the end of the process, AfL incorporates measurement throughout the learning process.
Learners know exactly where they are at all times -- which areas are solid, and what they need to work on. Teachers can see the results of their lessons and modify what they're doing to improve results. Parents and administrators have no surprises -- from the pre-class measurement to the end of class wrap-up.
