  8. Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom (DVD)

    In this video, author and educator Myron Dueck explains how assessment and grading policies can be tailored to focus on what really matters: student understanding of content. You'll visit a variety of secondary classrooms where teachers are using Dueck's practical strategies to assess and grade smarter, not harder. Rather than grading every assignment regardless of its purpose, the teachers organise lessons according to learning goals and identify clear levels of performance to keep the focus on learning. Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom shows how well-planned and well-executed assessment and grading policies can contribute to, rather than impede, student achievement.
