Align Products with Outcomes
Once the outcomes for the project have been decided, planning effective assessments requires that you work backwards to align the products or performances for the project with the outcomes. Products are the presentations, papers, exhibits, or models that are completed during a project. What products will provide adequate evidence of student learning and achievement? Every outcome must be assessed, giving students the opportunity through the products to demonstrate what they are required to know and do.
