Welcome to the Assessment for Learning 2021 Conference. 

All the information you need for the conference is on our Mission Control Page, conveniently linked on our conference website: www.assessmentforlearningconference.org/missioncontrol

There, you’ll find:

  • Our Conference Schedule

  • All flipped sessions on the Participate Platform

  • The link for our General Session room, where you can always find a human to chat with for help

  • The Miroverse, our asynchronous space for you to reflect, connect and play- JUMP THERE NOW


  • Where can I find the Zoom links for individual sessions? All links for Zoom and other session materials are in the individual session pages on the Conference Schedule. When you add something to your schedule, you will not receive a confirmation of your attendance. You will need to log into sched to click on the yellow button that says video link OR click on “Session Zoom Link” in the description. 

  • Do I have to pre-register for a session in order to attend? You can still attend a session if you did not pre-register. If you plan on joining a session, it’s helpful to pre-register so that the host knows about how many people to expect, but it’s not required.

  • Should I watch the Flipped Sessions before the Conference? You are welcome to watch these before, during and after the conference. We’ve built in breaks during both days so that you can explore this flipped content. All Q&A sessions have flipped content, and we recommend watching these before attending the session if possible. That said, if you’re not able to watch the flipped content ahead of time you are still welcome to join the session!

  • Need Help? If you have questions or need help navigating the Conference, you can always visit the General Session link. Whether there’s a “mainstage” session or not, you’ll find our Space Concierge | Help Desk to answer your questions.

Q/A | Abundant Assessment

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


Many assessments are tied to excessively great consequences. Failing a final, for example may force you to repeat an entire class. Such consequences get in the way of using assessments for learning. Consequences are high because assessments are expensive to build, score, and report. They are scarce in economic terms. But what if assessments were abundant? It would turn the economics of assessment on its head. In this short Ignite talk I describe how to build high-quality and abundant assessments and what that could do for our students.

Please view the pre-work video first and come ready to discuss the possibilities.
