Description:
What kinds of tasks do we give to students to develop a concept and how do we evaluate
students understanding of that concept? What role does formative assessment play in where
we go next? In this session, participants will explore the components of rigor, categorize tasks
by these components and review formative assessment to answer the “Now what?” question.
