Making Mastery Accessible: Assessment Pathway Tool


Antonia Rudenstine


One of the best ways to ensure that students have enough opportunity to master new content and skills is to develop an Assessment Pathway (also called an Evidence Map or Opportunity Map). The Pathway allows educators to map out when and where students will have the opportunity to undertake college- and career-aligned tasks. This prototyping tool provides a way for designers to begin mapping out the kinds of performance tasks students will undertake at each performance level, in each department, and across the school as a whole. To see a working prototype, check out the Model Assessment Pathway.
