Beyond Rubrics: How We Design Embedded Assessment Tools for School-Based Making

Learn about the Beyond Rubrics project, a collaboration between MIT's Teaching Systems Lab and Maker Ed! In this workshop we'll start with a brief overview of the project, introducing embedded assessment and the process of creating embedded assessment tools for maker education.

Experience: Participants will form a small group to engage in a maker activity in which assessment is embedded in the process of making. This assessment process will be designed using the toolkits that we have been co-designing by educators and instructional coaches specifically targeting middle school classrooms. Participants will critique the assessment toolkits, modify them, and iterate on them, based on collective discussion and their experiences. We will then invite participants to discuss how they may assess the skills and competencies in their own learning spaces.
