Multiple Measures Matter

Part 1 of a 2 part series on the purpose and use of assessment.
Looking at various types of assessment and their purposes, particularly as they relate to the decisions all stakeholders in the educational ecosystem need or want to make can be daunting. Figuring out what people know and believe before you start has some advantages to informing conversations and learning opportunities.  What do teachers and leaders across the nation think about different types of assessment? This session allows participants to compare local ideas related to different types of assessment with those gathered from a national survey. How do you use, interpret, and communicate assessments and their results compared with stakeholders nationally? Leave with some questions you may want to use in your context to start or deepen conversations about assessment.
