Assessment and student engagement.

In this #LTHEchat we’ll be discussing student engagement and assessment. Although we know these two items can be considered in terms of teachers and student perceptions as stand alone items, we also know that both items are directly linked for progression and continuity. This session aims to explore what is that we do to ensure/increase engagement whilst bearing in mind  assessment design.

The Storify is available here.
