The George Lucas Education Foundation (GLEF) has just published "Assessment," the third in its series of on-line instructional modules developed by education faculty and professional developers.
This module contains resources on assessment that may be useful to your LSC. The module includes articles, video footage, a PowerPoint presentation, and class activities. It draws from GLEF's archives of best practices and it correlates with ISTE/NCATE NETS standards.
This "Assessment" module is meant for use either after completion of the
Project-Based Learning" module (another on-line module published by GLEF) or with participants who are familiar with project-based learning. The module is divided into two parts. The first part, "Guided Process," gives a brief introduction to assessment and and it includes a slide show that can be downloaded or used from this Web site. The second part, "Group Participation," includes suggested readings and activities for experiential, project-based learning.
