Our Favourite Summative Assessments for BBI

I’ll share summative projects for all units in BBI (including final culminating tasks) that we have developed and tested over the last few years in our classrooms.  All are student engaging, straightforward to assess, and can be done with or without technology supports.

This Session will include assessments designed to integrate with Google Classroom for the hybrid/remote model and beyond.
