One approach to developing student inquiry skills is to break down an inquiry-based assignment into multiple parts and provide feedback at each stage, also known as “assessment for learning”. Students benefit from having an opportunity to reflect on and revise their work as they go and instructors benefit from a more carefully crafted end product resulting from a process of ongoing skill development. Join us to share examples of this approach and to construct an assessment plan for one of your own assignments.
