Many of us aim to support students in pursuing creative programming projects, but it can be challenging to understand what students have made by working on those projects. In this one-hour session, we’ll explore a report entitled Assessing Creativity in Computing Classrooms, which contains some of the stories and reflections from 80 PK–12 teachers across the U.S., as well as 50 assessment examples used in their classrooms. We’ll discuss strategies for assessing creative programming projects and consider how to apply strategies to our own contexts.
