Equally as important as writing strong learning objectives is finding ways to measure whether students have achieved them. In this workshop, participants will consider the alignment between different types of assessments and different levels of learning objectives. We will discuss the importance of not only aligning assessments and learning objectives but also selecting assessments that scaffold your learners toward deeper understanding. All participants will leave this workshop having written drafts of three aligned learning objectives and ideas for assessment to use in a course in the future.

Workshop Facilitators:
Tracy Dobie is a Ph.D. candidate in Learning Sciences (in the School of Education and Social Policy) focusing on issues of motivation and equity in mathematics education.

Matt June is a Ph.D. candidate in History, specializing in 20th century United States politics and society.
