The Ultimate goal of all learning is transfer - the ability to apply our learning to new situations, ones that we have previously not encountered. Are you already familiar with conceptual learning and want to take your practice to the next level with authentic assessment of transfer?

Participants will design a system of feedback about the quality of teaching and learning in one unit of study, including an end of unit assessment of a completely new situation. This workshop series is designed for experienced practitioners of conceptual learning and transfer who are ready for the next iteration of assessing. Join us to reimagine the purpose and possibilities of assessment in a transfer-focused classroom.
Session 1: Students in the Driver’s Seat
  • Teach students how to monitor their abilities to acquire, connect, and transfer their learning to new situations.
  • Cultivate student independence through a system of feedback that informs them about where they are in the learning journey.
Session 2: Authentic Transfer Assessment
  • Design an end of unit transfer assessment that requires students to transfer their understanding and skills to a completely new situation.
Session 3: Ongoing Assessment Plan & Feedback
  • Draft an ongoing assessment plan and system of feedback about learning.
Session 4: Re-thinking Grading & Marking
  • Construct a grading scheme that translates assessment data into student grades (as/if required by your school).
