A key element of teaching economics is understanding what
students know and can do with the content. This workshop
features segments about writing effective test items, designing
rubrics that mirror the standards, and delivering meaningful
feedback as well as other important assessment practices.
The workshop focuses on the Economics standards at each
grade level. Teachers analyze, evaluate, and create assessments
in the workshop that can be used immediately in their classroom.
There is no registration fee for this workshop,
instructional materials are provided, substitute reimbursement is
available, and lunch is provided.
This workshop helps teachers learn how to help their students play the Stock Market Game and, more importantly, learn from the stock market.

Participants in this workshop are expected to play the game this semester. New AND veteran teachers are encouraged to attend to learn about new rule changes and new resources!
