SLOs are only as reliable as the assessment tools used to measure the student outcomes. Participants in the session will develop a greater understanding of powerful assessment practices necessary to measure performance tasks that will be used as assessment evidence for SLO reporting. They will be actively engaged in developing tools to be used within their schools and classrooms that will ensure the reliable measurement of SLOs.

1. Create a common understanding of the assessment cycle and various assessment tools
2. Recognize high quality assessments based on standards and learning targets
2. Develop an authentic, standards-based assessment
3. Design an evaluative rubric or checklist
4. Compare the assessment cycle with the SLO process
