Understanding Learning in Maker Classrooms

Project Overview

Many schools around the world are going through curriculum changes in order to incorporate more student-centered, hands-on, active forms of learning. However, designing and conducting assessment that can provide meaningful feedback to students and teachers are an ongoing challenge for many. This study explores how teachers in the lower mainland B.C., Canada, are navigating this change, focusing on their assessment practices.
