This workshop brings together two projects working with formal educators to develop and use tools for assessment and evaluation of learning and/or engagement in makerspaces. Cutting across formal and informal settings, this workshop will actively engage the participants in using two assessment tools with a hands-on maker activity. Participants will evaluate and debrief their experiences with the two tools, one created by Madison Public Library, and the other by the MakEval team. This will enable reflection to consider the applicability of the tools to the participants' unique contexts.
