Presented by Rick Stiggins

Now that ESSA has granted states and districts increased flexibility and ownership, we have the unprecedented opportunity to change assessment for the better. Enter Rick Stiggins, who has helped thousands of teachers, principals, and other educational leaders become assessment-literate and develop systems built on quality assessments. If you’re looking for straightforward steps and strategies for designing a plan that balances formative and summative assessments, this webinar is a must-attend.

Learn how to:

  • Balance your assessment system to meet the information needs of all assessment users
  • Clarify the learning targets to be assessed
  • Assure the dependability of assessment by using quality assessment
  • Communicate assessment results effectively
  • Engage students as partners in the assessment process as they are learning

A leader’s guide will be provided to webinar participants that details how each key fits into a framework for a balanced assessment system.
