Competency-Based Learning Strategy:
Host Defense of Learning
NOTE: This strategy is part of the self-paced Design Performance-Based Assessments
A defense of learning is a way for a student to share a portfolio or a specific product and reflect on how they achieved the intended learning outcomes. A committee of peers, teachers, family, and/or community members provide feedback and determine if the student met learning outcomes. This experience mimics real-life situations like work presentations and provides an authentic deadline and audience, leading to higher-quality work.
Gain inspiration from authentic examples of this strategy shared by teachers who have used them with their learners.
