ASSESSMENT
Standardized tests are just one form of appraising student achievement. The documentaries in this collection look at the many innovative ways to assess students in K-12 schools.

-ON THIS DVD-

--Assessment Overview--
Standardized tests aren't the only way to gauge student achievement. Performance assessments offer a richer, more holistic approach to evaluating what students know and can do.

--Urban Academy--
Project-oriented assessments that include critiques by outside experts are among the innovations at this New York City high school.

--Key Learning Community--
Swimming against the tide, this K-12 Indianapolis school emphasizes exploration and deep understanding over rote memorization.

--Mountlake Terrace High School--
Students in Eeva Reeder's geometry class design schools for 2050, with guidance from two Seattle architects.

--Media Smarts--
Teachers are discovering the value of imparting media-literacy skills, from critical analysis of news programs, commercials, and films to basic design and video-production techniques.

--High Expectations--
Through a focus on teamwork, individualized instruction, and ongoing assessment, this K-6 school is improving the achievement of minority and low-income students.

--WHEA Electric Car--
High school students learn a variety of academic, communication, and teamwork skills when they build and race a car for the Hawaiian Electric Electron Marathon.

--About The George Lucas Educational Foundation--
An introduction to GLEF, its mission, and its projects. Includes interview clips with founder and chairman George Lucas.
