Grades, test scores, and levels communicate little about students’ potential or their disposition toward learning. Technology, when used with intention, can provide a more comprehensive picture of the whole child. Digital tools and products including video, images, apps, and audio can capture evidence of learning in ways that enhance and even transform the school experience.

By implementing a more authentic approach to facilitating assessment in the classroom, teachers can realize the true potential of technology in education.
