Design effective learning assessment.
Use the Learning Assessment Design Deck to plan effective assessment strategies that are constructively aligned to learning outcomes for any educational context. The deck is based on the well established Bloom’s Taxonomy and provides an interactive approach to curriculum design to ensure conceptual and procedural consistency.
The Learning Assessment Design Deck can be used to design new learning objectives and assessment mechanisms or to augment existing sets of learning objectives with constructively aligned assessment strategies.
The Learning Assessment Design Deck is aimed at educators, instructional designers or anyone tasked with creating educational content, ranging from video tutorials, articles and books to workshops, projects and entire classes in school or university.

Learning Assessment Design
With its modular design process, the Learning Assessment Design Deck provides a simple yet flexible template for constructing and writing learning objectives and constructively aligned assessment strategies in a single step.
Use it to create tangible output that is ready for immediate application. The cards are designed to easily ideate and articulate learning objectives and assessment mechanisms. They are composed by combining operator and verb cards to address the different cognitive dimensions of Bloom’s taxonomy. Then, the cards support the selection of conceptually suitable assessment cards that serve to evaluate learner’s proficiency. Post-its can be used to customize and add context to your own learning design.
A design cycle with the Learning Assessment Design Deck deck can be run individually or in teams as a design studio-like session. It makes the process of designing learning objectives and constructively aligned assessment strategies creative, collaborative and even fun.

How IT works
Are you designing a tutorial or workshop, a series of lectures or an entire course? Define the level of granularity for the learning experience you are planning.
Some easy-to-use operator cards will help you to structure the design process.
Define what your learners should be able to do after going through the learning experience you are designing.
The verb cards – based on the well known Bloom’s Taxonomy – will help you to address the appropriate cognitive dimension, the thinking process your learners should encounter and practice.
Based on the addressed cognitive dimension, select from a wide range of constructively aligned assessment cards, to design the appropriate assessment mechanism for the learning objective.
The result is a conclusive statement of both the learning objective and assessment strategy that ensures conceptual consistency through constructive alignment.
