Event description
Explore designing a performance assessment experience starting with those students who are typically farthest from opportunity.

About this event

This workshop series asks, “What kind of performance assessment experience would we create to ensure that learners, especially those farthest from opportunity, thrive when we operationalize our current vision/profile of a graduate?”

Participants will explore the different features of high quality performance assessment (HQPA) and design a prototype of a performance assessment experience that provides evidence of student learning/thinking of essential competencies. The series concludes with participants iterating on that prototype after centering the lived experience of a marginalized student your system may serve, and reflecting on the changes needed to ensure that ALL students thrive in their performance assessment system.

This workshop series is facilitated by ELP Deeper Learning Coaches, Alcine Mumby and Abby Benedetto.

FAQ

What is the best size of team to attend? These sessions are designed for individuals on their own (who we are titling "Solo Adventurers") to teams from a single school to folks district-wide... However, 5-7 per team might be a good max size for the allotted group worktime sessions. Solo Adventurers will be given the option for alone worktime or to collaborate with each other!

What would be the ideal team member roles? Having a robust cross section of perspectives is, of course, the best option. It is great to have at least one person with decision-making power. (We say this because we have done these before and had teachers get super fired up during the workshop only to feel deflated at the end when they realize they don't think their admin will get behind the vision.) You may want to have some folks who tend to be the early adopters as well as some who tend to be more critical - ideally the experience will inspire both sides of that coin (but no promises!).

Should we involve students or other stakeholders in the workshop? We are strident supporters of having students at the table WHENEVER possible. We think a student (current and/or alumni.... former students are often the absolute best source of info about how school prepared them for the next chapter), parents, and other community members are deeply valuable in this process. That being said, part of each of the sessions will include stakeholder engagement planning time. So if they are not part of the group that attends the actual workshop, you can [should] still absolutely engage them in the overall process.
