Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, August 11, 8:54 PM

Taxonomies can be used to create assessment, map big ideas in a curriculum, structure discussions–in fact, this should probably be a post of its own. But back to Webb & DOK–Grant Wiggins recently shared a post on assessment design–or rather, the reality of “power verbs” as they relate to rigor (always a fun word) and complexity.

Like the Transformers, we're focused more on the spectacle or presentation of the project than the level of thinking the student demonstrated and depth of knowledge the student communicated in designing the project.
John R. Walkup's insight:
