The assessment workshop is designed for teachers who have been implementing Thinking Classrooms practices and are ready to delve into assessment. In addition to the assessment practices laid out in Building Thinking Classrooms, participants will revisit and explore advanced teacher moves relevant to the other practices explored in the Introduction (and Intermediate) workshop(s). 

Building Thinking Classrooms continues to evolve as more and more teachers implement BTC across the globe. Throughout the series, special attention will be given to new Thinking Classroom practices, especially around closing lessons, that have emerged since the initial release of the book.

It is recommended that teachers have attended an Introduction and/or Intermediate workshop prior to the assessment workshop

Workshop 1Evaluate what you Value

In this session we will explore assessment practices that have been shown to radically shape students' behaviours in the thinking classroom. Participants will leave with a template that can be used to assess a wide range of competencies and processes.

Workshop 2 : Formative Assessment

In this session we will explore a type of formative assessment that is done by students for students and has been shown to drastically increase student performance on summative assessment.

Workshop 3 : Summative Assessment

In this session we will explore several contemporary grading practices including outcomes-based assessment and triangulation of data. The main focus of this session is to learn how to do this practically, efficiently, and effectively.
