The Big Three: Connecting Assessments, Curriculum and Professional Learning for Student Impact
Thursday, Nov. 9, 2023, 1 p.m.: Today’s educators have a wealth of assessment options and mountains of resulting data, so why is it so hard to boost student achievement? Aligned assessments, high quality data and a knowledge of what to do with them is what separates effective data-driven instruction from a waste of teacher time. When this alignment happens, actionable insights into student learning can drive student success.
Learn how understanding the alignment links between standards, curriculum, assessments and professional learning can help administrators and educators improve instruction, easily identify students who may need additional intervention or enrichment opportunities and ensure success for all students.
