Student-Centered Assessment Guide: Exhibitions

By George Brooke and Heidi Andrade
April 23, 2013

Developed by the Students at the Center Team to illustrate the practical application of the research described in their Assessing Learning paper, this guide summarizes exhibitions as a student-centered assessment practice. The guide provides a clear definition, outlines components of effective exhibitions, and details the supportive conditions needed to implement them. It also provides links to online examples.

An exhibition is a high-stakes demonstration of mastery that occurs at a culminating academic moment, such as the end of a school year or at graduation. Exhibitions are summative assessments, but the process of building up to a final exhibition includes ongoing assessment, feedback, and revision. This simple guide can help any teacher begin implementing this practice in their classroom.
