Using Assessments to Improve Teaching and Learning

When assessment drives instruction, students learn more and become more confident, self-direct learners. Assessing Projects provides resources to assist teachers in creating assessments that address higher order thinking skills and shares strategies to facilitate making assessments an integral part of teaching and learning and an in depth dive at content and student centered learning.

Assessing Projects provides a space to create new assessments by searching, selecting, and modifying examples from a prepared library of assessments. Teachers can build original assessments or modify assessments focusing on problem solving, self-direction, collaboration and critical thinking.
