Attendees will learn how the research assessment design demands a major paradigm shift in the classroom and how assessment is the foundation to that shift.

October 21 – Assessment 101 – This hands-on session will focus on methodologies used in creating and ensuring high quality formative and summative assessments. Attendees will learn how to use the research behind assessment designing and high-quality common assessments.

November 18 – Next Steps: Embedding Sound Assessment Practice into Daily Instruction – This hands-on session will build upon practices learned in the first two sessions in order to establish common procedures within the district, school or PLC. Attendees will discuss a framework and process for creating and evaluating assessments within their district or school.
