This course focuses on assessment literacy for the instructional leader as Illinois districts transition to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and assessments from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). Participants will improve their ability to use appropriate assessments for designated purposes, analyze current student assessment in their schools, understand high-quality assessments that measure deeper learning, and recognize and avoid common pitfalls when supporting the use of assessment data. Two key questions structure the course: “What constitutes a high-quality assessment?” and “What are we learning from assessment data, and how can we use it to support improved student learning?”

Two Half Day Sessions: Thursday, April 15, 2021 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and Thursday, April 29, 2021 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

This workshop will be delivered virtually via (Zoom). The link for connection information will be send via email.

Participants must attend both sessions.
