Accelerate learning with innovative assessments

By creating and using effective assessments, educators can create a culture of learning where students are engaged and invested in their own success.

Developed for teachers, teams, instructional coaches, and school and district administrators, this workshop offers rich dialogue and practical techniques for improving assessments practices. Deepen your understanding of formative and summative assessments, and learn how to design assessments that guide instruction, involve students, and communicate learning.
