Her practical framework takes you through the steps of
- Identifying clearly the type of thinking that you want to assess.
- Designing a task or test item that requires students to demonstrate the type of thinking you’re looking for.
- Determining how to interpret, evaluate, or score the results.
- Providing the right kind of materials to help students demonstrate their thinking.
