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.
