Build a framework for high-quality assessments

Collaborative common assessments are the engine of a professional learning community. By collaboratively developing these assessments, teams establish a consistent way to effectively monitor student learning, collectively respond to results, implement informed practice, and raise expectations. Gain tools, protocols, and strategies to design and effectively employ quality assessments that enable teams to collect meaningful instructional data and respond appropriately with interventions and enrichments.

Participants are encouraged to attend as a team. Team time will be provided each day to support implementation in schools or districts.

  • Identify the process of designing and the practice of employing a robust and balanced assessment system at the classroom level.
  • Focus on the keys to accurate design and effective use of collaborative common assessments.
  • Gain supportive tools, such as planning templates and protocols.
