Academic Pre-Planning: The Key to Academic Rigor

Speaker:
Dr. Lesa Seibert

Subject:
Instructional Strategies

Description:
Academic rigor deals with complexity. A student may be able to recall 100 details from memory and receive a 100% on a test. However, remembering, while often difficult, does not demonstrate complexity (i.e., academic rigor). A course with academic rigor will emphasize mastery skills and will contain assessments in which the students demonstrate those skills.
