“Show what you know in a way that matters.” As our world and the expectations for students continue to rapidly evolve, how can students demonstrate the deeper learning skills they have learned in robust, authentic ways? This webinar explored how performance assessments are doing just that and providing all students, including those who are farthest from opportunity, a vehicle to show what they know in a way that matters. Our panelists shared examples from their performance assessment work at the school, district and state levels and took questions from participants.
