Focus on Assessment to Raise Student Achievement Workshops

Starting in October of 2014 and culminating in April 2015, the focus of the TRAIL Professional Development Collaborative is assessment. The TRAIL is pleased to be able to offer Illinois educators access to three nationally know experts in the area of assessment. Susan Brookhart, Tom Schimmer, and Rick Wormeli will be “traveling the TRAIL” and presenting in venues across the state. We hope you are able to take advantage of this opportunity to get the latest information from these top experts in assessment.
