About this workshop: 

In this workshop, participants will examine the role of assessments in measuring student learning. We will explore the use of summative assessment methods, like final exams or research projects that are main components of a course design, alongside formative methods that you can build into your daily lesson plans.

Participants will:

1) identify and differentiate between different kinds of assessment goals

2) choose assessment techniques that align with assessment goals

3) respond to data obtained through assessments

About the facilitator: 

Keary Watts is a Ph.D. Candidate in Theatre and Drama and is a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the Searle Center. As instructor of record, he has designed and taught several courses in undergraduate writing, theatre history, and critical race theory. He is working on a dissertation that tracks and theorizes the political and historiographic potential of “strategic re-deployment,” or the purportedly anti-racist incorporation of nineteenth-century blackface minstrel conventions by Black theatre artists in the contemporary era.
