Designing Alternative Tasks and Assessments for Advanced Learners

The focus for this GPLC instructional topic is intended to provide teachers with the opportunity to proficiently master the implementation of Designing Alternative Tasks and Assessments for Advanced Learners.

The primary goal of this instructional topic is for teachers to learn how to design alternative tasks and assessments to meet the needs of all students. It is important to meet students where they are within a particular learning context, according to their unique readiness levels, personal interests, and individual student learning styles. This is especially true for advanced learners, to ensure they are challenged just like other students. This can be achieved in a variety of different ways (i.e. curriculum compacting, replacement tasks, differentiated summative tasks), all of which will be explored in detail within this course.
