Organization: National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Conference
Location: Denver, Colorado
In this speech: Dr. Carol Horn asks — How do we account for the achievement and progress of advanced learners in today’s classrooms? How do you design an assessment system that incorporates 21st Century skills and accommodates high levels of performance?
Participants explore and identify criteria for student performance that documents in-depth knowledge, an advanced application of skills, and a deep understanding of the content, issues, and problems inherent in a field, subject area, or discipline.
They discover how complex performances and real-world applications may be integrated into the learning process to prepare students for 21st century challenges and to document and report advanced intellectual growth.
