Assessing for Achievement!    EDT6958    NEW!       

Author: Diane Agnes M.Ed  and Chad Agnes M.Ed

 

This will be the best course you ever take on assessment!  The course

is full of engaging activities to help educators (and their classroom students)

demonstrate learning - AND motivate student achievement simultaneously! You will learn some philosophy regarding assessment, but most importantly, spend time conceiving/planning effective and creative assessments. Participants will have time for both reflection and work. The goal of the course is to empower educators in their perceptions of student improvement and achievement, and their communication of that progress to parents, peers, and colleagues.  The concepts presented in this class are based on the best practices of Dr. Robert Marzano, Dr. John Hattie, Carol Ann Tomlinson, Connie M. Moss, Susan M. Brookhart, Myron Duek, Erik Francis, Rick Stiggins and others. It is suggested that participants bring either a laptop or tablet to class.
