Join the Association of American Educators, Nicholas Munyan-Penney (The Education Trust) and Jamie Gonzales (New Meridian) as you develop a deeper understanding of different assessment systems and explore how they can support educators and student learning. Our educational system promises to support students in their journey to becoming the leaders, innovators, and problem-solvers of tomorrow. We have a responsibility to check that our system is keeping its promise to all students, and high-quality assessment is an essential lever in pursuing a more equitable education system. Administering assessments can be challenging, and we have to work together to ensure that the effort truly results in usable, accessible data that empowers stakeholders at every level.
In this interactive learning session, you will:
• Strengthen your assessment knowledge through shared language.
• Learn about the benefits of data-driven decision-making.
• Explore the purpose and intended uses of summative assessments.
• Illustrate how summative assessment data can be used at all levels.
