One response to “Who is AntiochCriticalSkills?

  1. Hi. I ran across your blog and course because you have linked to my Authentic Assessment Toolbox as a resource. I am impressed with your emphasis on critical skills and how you have given some very substantial thought on how to promote these skills. I thought I would mention that I have a new text out on Assessing Critical Skills that addresses the often unfamiliar task of formatively and summatively assessing such vital skills. You can find it at


    Good luck with your work,
