In the last quarter of the 2019-2020 school year, the Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium presented four sessions with Rick Wormeli on Assessment & .. Read more Grading to Support Learning at Home, focusing on effective principles and practices, particularly in our challenging situation with all students learning at home instead of in their school buildings due to the pandemic outbreak of Covid-19. In three two-hour, interactive sessions, we examined assessment and grading principles and how they apply to grading while students are learning at home, differentiated instruction, descriptive feedback techniques, and how to minimize cheating and plagiarizing. Interest in ethical, accurate, and pedagogically effective instruction, assessment, and grading practices has emerged as a result. To continue supporting Alberta educators in this effort, ERLC is offering a series of presentations by Rick Wormeli for the 2020-21 school year that extend ideas from the Assessment & Grading to Support Learning at Home series, and introduce new content supportive of those principles that apply to both in-person AND remote learning scenarios. Each webinar is an important element to address assessment and grading challenges for Alberta. When teaching the same thing year after year, sometimes we can become complacent as educators, going through the motions, relying on comfortable familiarity to resolve instruction and assessment challenges. Developing these competencies can lead to enhanced teaching and learning.
