I believe we need to give our students choices in the ways they “show what they know.” A hallmark of high-quality education in the 21st century is “differentiated assessment,” as well as differentiated instruction. In making this case to your administrator, consider using the 2001 revision to Bloom’s Taxonomy by Anderson and Krathwohl. New Zealand educator Andrew Churches has created a wiki for Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy with lots of great resources related to this topic, and has also created a Scribed document explaining these ideas in detail. (Thanks to Darren Kuropatwa for alerting me to these resources!)
