Dear Edutopia Friend,
At Edutopia, we value an authentic learning process that nurtures 21st-century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, and global awareness, which is why we promote project-based learning (PBL). But how do educators assess learning when implementing PBL? This crucial and frequently asked question led us to create our latest classroom guide: "Top Ten Tips for Assessing Project-Based Learning."
This free download is full of hands-on advice and resources from around the Web. From tips on how to "Keep It Real with Authentic Products" to "Use Formative Strategies to Keep Projects on Track," our new guide is full of strategies to help you assess K-12 classroom projects like a pro.
So please take a moment to download our "Top Ten Tips for Assessing Project-Based Learning," and share it with your colleagues, classroom parents, and district leaders. You can also download our guide to your iPad and other mobile devices, making it easy to have the tips and tools you need at your fingertips!
