Using Assessment in the Service of Learning: Practical, Possible and Powerful Ideas for K-12 Classrooms

How can classroom teachers make sense of the myriad of demands when it comes to classroom assessment and evaluation?

In this one-day session Dr. Anne Davies and Brenda Augusta will share practical, possible and powerful ideas, strategies and methods to

  • identify and collect reliable and valid evidence of learning including baseline evidence;
  • use evidence of learning to inform teaching and to improve learning;
  • involve students in collecting evidence and showing proof of learning and achievement; and
  • respond to the challenge of informed professional judgment and reporting.

Anne and Brenda will bring the ideas to life with detailed classroom accounts as well as in-session discussions, readings and video clips to show the work in action.

Current research findings show that what teachers do makes a difference! Using assessment in the service of learning has the highest impact on learning and achievement. Come to this day of learning to be inspired and reenergized!

Save the date! Details regarding location and early-bird registration will be available in January.
