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 and delivering meaningful feedback as well as other
important assessment practices. The workshop will primarily
focus on the Economics standards at each grade level.
Teachers analyze, evaluate, and create assessments in the

digitally with all those that register and attend. There is
no registration fee, and all resources used will be shared with
participants at no financial cost to them.
