Karin Hess

Educational Research in Action
Underhill, VT
I am a former classroom teacher (15 years) and school administrator, best known for my work with Depth of Knowledge, assessment design, and the Hess Cognitive Rigor Matrix. I facilitated NH's development of model competencies in ELA, math, and science and in 2020 supported the NHLI and JFF development of the BEST Toolkit for Self-Direction. In 2021 we will continue this work to design K-12 self-assessment rubrics for collaboration, creativity, and communications that are research-based and kid friendly.
