School of the Future teacher Andy Snyder discusses the practical aspects, benefits and challenges of implementing authentic assessment.

Presenter: Andy Snyder, a social studies teacher from School of the Future

Host: Betty Ray, community manager @ Edutopia

Description: Andy Snyder teaches social studies at New York's School of the Future, the subject of Edutopia's latest Schools That Work on comprehensive assessment. He and his colleagues also implement a new model of assessment known as "authentic" assessment using everything from end-of-class exit notes, to large-scale presentations and exhibitions, to more traditional tests and exams to measure progress.

Andy will be joining us for an hour-long live chat to discuss the practical aspects, benefits and challenges of implementing authentic assessment. Bring your questions and ideas to share.

Audience: Perfect for middle and high school teachers, administrators, and policy makers ready to explore comprehensive assessment strategies.
