Looking for ways to teach and assess students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills? Building on Assessment for Learning principles, Two Rivers Public Charter School has developed a system to collect data on students’ abilities to transfer the cognitive skills embedded in project-based learning and other inquiry-based instructional approaches. Come learn how we developed discrete performance assessments centered on different aspects of critical thinking, and how we use the data to inform instruction and to help students integrate cognitive skills into their lives. Our session will leave participants with practical considerations for implementing similar models.
