Two NPR Reports Common Core

The Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity (SCALE) is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of an exciting new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), Designing for Deeper Learning: How to Develop Performance Assessments for the Common Core.
This 9-week course will build educators’ capacity to develop and use curriculum-embedded performance assessments that fit local contexts. Course activities will guide students through the development and implementation of a performance task that is aligned with a specific curricular unit and performance outcomes integral to the Common Core State Standards. The course will use a learning-centered approach in which assessments are not only of learning, but also for learning.
This free online course begins September 8, 2014. We encourage educators to sign up in school-based teams or in collaboration with other colleagues. Teachers will also have the option of working individually or connecting with participants from around the world through the NovoEd platform. While the course is designed for classroom teachers of grades 6-12, we welcome all those interested in performance assessment, including teacher educators, school administrators, district leaders, and policy makers.
