Making Mastery Meaningful: Opportunities for Authentic Feedback in Proficiency-Based and Project-Based Learning

March 12

1:45-3:00 PM

In this session with New Tech Network Director Stacia Snow, participants will explore multiple opportunities for authentic feedback within the phases of high-quality project-based unit design. Presenters will discuss how mastery-based assessments enhance the quality of a project and personalize the work for each student. Participants will engage in several human-centered design activities to inspire feedback innovations and plan ways to try them out with their students.

Session participants will gain an understanding of the phases of high-quality project-based unit design and find various opportunities within each phase to embed mastery-based assessments; create authentic opportunities for feedback utilizing project-based learning unit design, and make a plan for small-scale implementation of authentic and mastery-based feedback with their students.
