How our 3D Assessment PD works

Quality Tools

Teachers will receive hands on experience and analysis of the best tools for 3D assessment creation

Build for Rigor

Teachers build rigorous assessment clusters, driven by rich phenomena to thoroughly assess the standards

Individualized Coaching

After the PD, each teacher will receive personal coaching on future assessments via Google Drive comments and/or video conferencing

Assign and Analyze

Free access to InnerOrbit’s item bank and reports to administer assessments and analyze student performance.
