Have you ever wondered how to develop quality assessments that allow students to showcase their understanding in various ways? Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles advocate for the creation of assessments that offer multiple means of engagement and align with students' individual strengths and preferences. Join Dr. Matt Bergman for this hands-on, interactive workshop as we explore how to build assessments with UDL in mind, including design standards-aligned assessments with construct-relevant options. Get ready to reimagine your assessment strategy to ensure that all students have equitable opportunities to demonstrate their learning! Matt’s expertise in universal design for learning will equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to craft rubrics, provide meaningful feedback, and celebrate diverse learning abilities of students – all while creating a feedback-rich classroom where every student thrives. 

This is workshop two of four for the series titled “The Transformative Power of Universal Design for Learning.”
