For maker education to take root in sustainable and meaningful ways within school classrooms, assessments of maker activities need to clarify what cognitive and non-cognitive skills are being learned and practiced, connect to existing competency frameworks, capitalize on current assessments, and be accessible for teachers to adopt and in particular, adapt. Clear evidence of learning and skill development strengthens the impact of maker education while also reinforcing and supporting open-ended, process-oriented, student-centered learning. MIT Teaching Systems Lab and Maker Ed have been collaborating on a NSF project to develop embedded assessment for maker-centered learning environments, while simultaneously providing support, training, and resources to teachers and instructional coaches. This workshop engages participants in hands-on experiences to play, test, and iterate on these assessment tools and adapt them for their own classrooms.
