This course is designed to help you understand the power of assessment and monitoring student growth to inform instruction. All teachers want to know where their students start, how they progress, and the results of the teaching and learning process. Diagnostic, formative and summative assessments each play a role in monitoring student learning. Throughout this course, we will talk about using a balanced assessment system in your classroom to support instructional decisions for optimal student success.
Additionally, we will look at how assessment is important in helping students to take charge of their own learning. Finally, we will address the importance and power of culturally responsive pedagogy, curriculum and assessment to ensure students are engaged in authentic learning.
Participants may earn 35 PLU’s.
