Evidence, Assessments, and Visible Thinking

Proficency-based assessment requires designing so that learners can create evidence that demonstrates their thinking.

These strategies can be used in F2F as well as remote environments!

Thoughts about tech tools and how they can help with assessment:

  • Flip Grid allows for attachments where examples could be posted and commented on.

  • Some LMSs (like Schoology) have a discussion that restricts access until a user has posted--ensuring you see their initial thinking.

  • Schoology and Google Classroom allow for documents to be individually created for each student.

  • Canvas allows for students to anonymously peer review each other's work.

Bold Edventures also offers a mini-course on designing tasks that show thinking.
