A World of Products: Encouraging Excellence through Product Protocol
Paper

Presenter(s):

How can you engage students in high-level learning where they think creatively and critically? One powerful way is through intentional product development and assessment. Today’s learners have a wealth of information at their fingertips; they also have incredible technological tools to package that information. Educators must ensure that students are able to translate their learning in meaningful, high quality ways. One way to encourage authentic assessment of real-world products is to use a protocol that ensures ease, consistency, and clarity. Developing and Assessing Product (DAP) Tools guide students in product development, facilitate differentiation, simplify assessment, and remove the learning ceiling.
