Assessment in the Inclusive Classroom

I am learning to post VoiceThreads with more consistency. I found this interesting VoiceThread from Solution Tree that talks about assessment in the classroom while reading my Twitter feed tonight. As we work to create inclusive classrooms, we must remember that assessment is one of the four key questions we must ask as educators:
1. What do we want the students to learn?
2. How will we know that they have learned it? (Assessment)
3. What will we do if they have not learned it?
4. What will we do if they already know it?
