Event description

Description

Continuously evaluate and advance student learning by integrating formative assessment into your teaching practices.




This course guides educators in exploring the differentiated learning needs of students as they progress through the Formative Assessment Cycle. Educators will consider the following questions: What is the student to learn? What has the student learned? What must be done to help the student meet the learning target and/or advance the student to the next level?

Day One of the course includes: considering the characteristics of formative and summative assessment; exploring the four critical questions of curriculum instruction and assessment; using evidence to advance student learning; and crafting Learning Intentions and Criteria for Success.

Day Two includes: opportunities to explore feedback, questioning practices and strategies, and crafting planned questions.


During this course, participants will:

  • Recognize the role of formative assessment & summative assessment in advancing student learning
  • Establish clear learning intentions & criteria for success for each lesson
  • Intentionally plan questions that will assess the level of student understanding
  • Provide descriptive feedback focused on student improvement
  • Teach students to use the Three Key Strategies of Formative Assessment to develop as a self-regulated learner


COURSE IS AVAILABLE IN PERSON AND VIRTUALLY. Please specify your preference when registering.
