Student Centered Balanced Assessment
PLTW’s assessment experts apply industry best practices and methods to design, test, and implement assessments for our network of schools. A summative assessment is available within each PLTW Launch module. This Check for Understanding targets specific knowledge and skills gained throughout the module.
PLTW supports a balanced approach to assessment for all programs, integrating both formative and summative assessments. Through a balanced assessment approach, assessment is an ongoing activity. Students demonstrate their knowledge throughout the course by completing activities, projects, and problems using a variety of assessment tools, such as performance rubrics and reflective questioning, to deepen and expand their knowledge and skills.
