Assessment vs. task | Learning is life.

Russ Goerend's "Assessment vs. Task" post fit so well with my co-facilitation of my assessment class last week that I had students read the post and then we invited Russ in via hangout. I think Russ hit on the same thing we were finding as a weakness with the "assessment triangle" from "Knowing What Students Know": every assessment should be approached with an explicit question of "What will this do to help the learning of the student?"
