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.
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.
