How to Enroll

This course is designed to help teams of educators develop common, authentic assessments that engage and challenge students and produce a measurable improvement on their composition skills. Participants will leverage the Google Apps for Education platform to create performance assessments and develop the infrastructure for administering and analyzing them. The course will begin with the construction of digital portfolios in Google Sites then employ digitally supported strategies to establish scoring rubrics, provide feedback mechanisms, encourage growth in metacognition, build research skills, and, finally, collect and analyze performance data. In the final session, educator teams will present evidence of impact from their own practice, explain what they have learned, and share their goals for ongoing improvement. This class is restricted to participants in the Writing & Assessing with Digital Media professional development program, and may be counted as an elective for the Certificate in the Teaching of Writing.  Part of the Western Mass Writing Project.
