Assessment for Learning (AfL) March 2021 Series

Do you want to empower students to take an active part in their own learning? AfL is an ongoing assessment approach to teaching and learning that creates feedback which is then used to improve students’ performance. AfL allows educators to monitor students on a day-to-day basis and modify their teaching based on what the students need to be successful. AfL aims to close the gap between a student's current situation and where they want to be in their learning and achievement. In this series, we will look at two different tools to assess students' learning. When educators use online assessment tools, students are actively engaging in the learning process, rather than passively absorbing information. Skilled educators plan tasks that help students to become more involved in the learning process. The workshops are: 

    Series 1: Turn students into owners of learning with Insert Learning
    Series 2: Put every student on the path to success with Edulastic
