Sue Hellman at UNB's curator insight, March 13, 2013 7:53 PM

Rigour does not have to mean rigidity. Alternate assessment can be as challenging and rigourous as traditional ways of determining what students have know or can do. Providing direct guidance about what each student needs to know to overcome whatever personal learning gaps stand between him/her and being successful in an academic environment. Each course, then on many levels, becomes a direct stepping stone to the next (inside a discipline, across disciplines) as the student develops a body of skills and knowledge that confer academic empowerment in a holistic way.
