Some webinars for Tuesday and Wednesday:
2015: Next Generation Assessment Implementation and Results
How can districts prepare their students and teachers for the national consortia's assessments this year? Efforts to align curriculum, instruction, and assessment with Common Core State Standards have intensified as the pressure escalates for states and districts that will take the new summative assessments this spring.
Widespread unease persists:
• Increased level of rigor,
• New item types,
• Unfamiliarity with format, and
• Test administration scheduling
Further, the transition to online administration poses additional planning and technical challenges.
Join our guests to better understand two approaches to these challenges—one in a Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium state and one in a Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers state. And learn how school and district leaders are preparing teachers and students to meet the challenges with confidence.
