CEP 813: Module 6 – Formative Assessment Design version 2.0

Standard

The curriculum design process should also pinpoint what is most worth understanding and instruction should be done with the goal that students will have the ability to transfer the learned knowledge in the future. Building in time for feedback and revisions are specific examples for how students could be directed toward the larger goals.
