Feedback on final version of the 4CID blueprint
A brief explanation and test of our modified deliverable.
asd
4CID feedback session
1. Are the performance tasks aligned with the goals? Will the tasks will yield appropriate evidence of the identified learning goals? Measures 2. Do the tasks involve a complex, real-world (authentic) application of the identified knowledge, skill and attitudes? 3. Are the tasks specific enough to be assessed, avoiding vague terms like "understand?" 4. Are the tasks not likely to be performed well without a clear grasp of the understandings the task is meant to assess? 5. Do the tasks allow students to demonstrate understanding with some choice, options, or variety in the performances and products? Rubrics 6. Do the scoring rubrics include distinct traits of understanding and successful performance? 7. Do the scoring rubrics highlight what is appropriate, given the evidence needs suggested by the goals?

We would appreciate feedback on our project!
Keep in mind we only have the one interviewee from our class session on Wednesday. We have had a hard time contacting our project team members. Please offer any tips that you have came across that have been helpful in contacting your clients.
The start of DoLE can be challenging. You and your teams get a lot of different things thrown at you. Please add questions here around what questions you would liked answered by us (Dan and Matt).
Critique in class 09/28
