Imagine being able to use assessment as a tool to engage your students in a way that is authentic and relevant to them. Do you ever wonder how to get your students to find value in their assessments? I focused my action research on offering choice in assessment to look at the impact it could have on engagement in my classroom. Although I implemented my project in 5th grade, these engagement strategies could apply to many different levels. If you are looking for ways to implement choice in your classroom as a tool for engaging students, this session is for you!
