Unit Assessment Planning

An Informational Webinar

Teachers are master planners! Traditionally, planning has been focused on developing units and lessons for instruction, with assessment added on at the end.

These unit assessment plans in grades 6, 7, 8, and 9 social studies, model how to anchor a unit with performance assessment and then design instruction and formative assessment backwards from the end goal.

The unit assessment plans on which the webinar is based were developed by AAC in partnership with the Southern Alberta Professional Development Consortium (SAPDC).

This webinar provides a walkthrough of the key elements of these assessment plans and highlights additional support provided by AAC. The webinar was developed by the Alberta Assessment Consortium (AAC) in partnership with the Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium (ERLC) as a result of a grant from Alberta Education to support implementation.

This webinar may also be accessed through the ERLC wiki.
