The Assesment Salon. Episode 2: Are the Systems We Built Working? with Dr. Mark Pleiss
From Amelia Gentile-Mathew on April 22nd, 2021
us for this episode of The Assessment Salon Podcast with Dr. Mark
Pleiss (he/him), where we ask the key question: how can we test if our
(assessment) structures are working? And explore the role that formative
tools play in holistic approaches to assessment, especially in online
learning. We also tackle the looming reality of the "cyborg student" and
chat about adopting the long-view to embrace the future of ed-tech,
career readiness, and more.
