EDU-652: Building Student Agency Through Assessment

3 credit hours

Educators will evaluate examples of highly agentic student-driven assessments such as capstones, exhibitions of learning and portfolio defenses as options for achieving deeper learning outcomes for all student. After unpacking the conditions necessary to support learner success in these experiences, educators design and implement experiences and tools to develop learner agency and readiness for student-driven assessment. With a focus on research-based best practice, educators will complete a critical analysis of authentic implementation of early shifts in structures and routines in order to make recommendations for needed systemic shifts.
