Hacking Assessment was my first opportunity to publicly share the shifts in assessment and grading practices in my classroom all the way back in 2015.
Over the years, I've had the opportunity to serve as a teacher, team leader, and instructional coach, promoting equitable assessment practices that empower students to be drivers of their learning.
Through those practices, I've witnessed firsthand how students have developed the skill to reflect and articulate their learning needs with a focus on self-advocacy. As more teachers learn these practices and leaders learn to support them, students have the best opportunity to know their capacity.
Once students understand themselves and can articulate areas of growth and challenge, they are capable of setting actionable goals and tracking specific target progress.
This second edition of Hacking Assessment goes live today This edition shares the evolution of my thinking as an educator, parent, and assessment reformer since the first edition and the work I've done in the interim.
If you read the first edition and are wondering if the second edition is worth buying, I promise that it fills in gaps that folks have asked about over the years regarding leadership support, new tech, and learning progressions and rubrics.
I'm so eager to hear what folks think while we continue to nurture and cultivate a community of educators looking to put students in the front.
Check out the short video below about the launch and the shift to more equitable assessment practices.
