K-12 Empowering Students and Inspiring Learning Through Assessment – March 2016

In our March session we started the conversation discussing the different types of assessment that we collect around our students and how we utilize that information then to guide instruction and curriculum moving forward.

We also explored the idea of an assessment system and what considerations and components would make up such a system in our classroom, building, district.  We then turned to Rick (in our book) to see what he had to say around these same talking points.

PPT for the Day can be Accessed here.

Homework for next Session: Please come next session with sample assessment from your level of influence.  This might be a classroom assessment, common assessment, or district assessment.  We will be looking at these items and talking about how these items connect to the work we have completed in this session over the year!

K-12 Empowering Students and Inspiring Learning Through Assessment – January 2016

Welcome Back and Happy 2016!

Great conversations today around chapters 3 and 4 and getting into some revolutionize assessment conversation.  Hopefully you got some good ideas and examples around how you can bring some innovative conversation into the process of assessment in your home districts.

We also discussed the idea of the Jurying Process and here are the documents I shared around that:
Selected Response Jury Item
Constructed Response Jury Item

Here is the PPT we worked through: bit.ly/1Qd63Nx

Homework for next Session: Please come prepared to further explore assessment and what that will look like in our classrooms around our existing materials.  To build prior knowledge for the discussion please review:
Chapter 6 in our Revolutionize Assessment Book

K-12 Empowering Students and Inspiring Learning Through Assessment – September 2015

Thanks for participating in our first session it was great to meet all of you and get our year started off on a great foot with some in-depth assessment conversation.

In this first session we had a chance to center ourselves around our current beliefs and thinking in assessment.  This discussion was centered around the first three chapters of our book – Revolutionize Assessment, and see how assessment currently exists and how it could exist in our classrooms.
