Teaching IBDP Economics as Informed by Assessment

Assessment is an important tool to measure student achievement. But assessment can also play a key role to inform us how we can support student learning. Information from formative assessment helps us make modifications and adjustments to our teaching. In this webinar, we will explore a range of formative assessment techniques, and how we can use them to improve our teaching.
We will explore:

– Types of formative assessment
– When formative assessment is most effective
– Student reflections
– Assessments that model IB Economics formal summative assessments
