  • What about your past work and interests contributes to your commitment and enthusiasm for the topic(s) you are going to present at BBAF?  My extensive work with performance-based assessments at the state level in Maryland—in both large scale and classroom levels—has convinced me of their potential to make learning more engaging and relevant for learners while assessing important learning outcomes that can otherwise “fall through the cracks” of conventional testing.
  • One wish you have that (if granted) would make a better assessment future for students?  I would love to see greater use of authentic performance tasks used as rich and relevant learning activities as well as serving as sources of assessment evidence.
