Back to Planning with the End in Mind 

By identifying key learning goals and building quality rubrics to assess them, teachers can help students focus on the learning that really matters.

Key Points

  • Learner outcomes should be front and centre when designing student tasks.
  • Within a project, the most important learning is often found in the skills, rather than thinking of the product as an end in itself.
  • Teachers build assessment capacity as they rework previous assessments to focus more closely on outcomes.

Discussion Question

  • What support will students need to shift their focus away from cosmetic factors towards higher level skills?
