What are the benefits of this seminar?

Common Formative Assessments, the centerpiece of an integrated standards-assessment system, give critical insight into a student’s learning. They are collaboratively designed and administered at scheduled times to provide teachers with the diagnostic data needed to monitor and adjust instruction. During this two-day seminar, participants will learn the 10-step process for creating Common Formative Assessments and develop a sample assessment with accompanying scoring guides. This highly interactive seminar ensures educators gain a deep understanding of how to collaboratively develop and refine assessments to gather reliable and timely feedback on their students’ progress.
