Learn and apply the use of Evidence-Centered Design (ECD) to develop quality formative assessments that better allow educators to drive instructional decisions and to use these assessments to make next-steps instructional decisions. Participants are welcome to bring a draft lesson plan with a formative assessment to work with during application activities; for those that do not bring their own samples, materials will be provided.
- Teachers will learn how to develop classroom-based formatives, checklists, and rubrics aligned to standards to gather information to plan effective lessons.
- School leaders will learn how to coach educators to develop standards-aligned formative assessments and use the data effectively in daily instructional planning.
- System leaders will learn how to use Evidence-Centered Design to develop assessments (interims, benchmarks, diagnostics) and how to coach others to use these assessments effectively.
