Assessment Leadership: A Learning Leaders Workshop
Tue, May 23, 2017, 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM EDT
Assessment Leadership: Leveraging Performance-Based Assessments for Deeper Learning, part of the SURN Learning Leaders workshop series, is designed for principals, assistant principals and leadership team members.
The focus in Virginia on a profile of a graduate as a critical thinker, effective collaborator, clear communicator, creative individual, and contributing citizen signifies a shift away from standardized assessments toward more authentic methods of assessing student learning, namely with performance-based assessments. PBAs are not new to education, but the challenge of developing them within a standards-based curriculum is. This session provides educational leaders grounded insights to work with teachers in creating and using PBAs as part of a balanced approach to classroom assessment and as an integral part of enacting more engaging models of instruction, such as project-based learning.
