Are your common assessments as good as they could be? Because the inferences educators make about student learning can only be as good as the evidence they collect, the source of that evidence—the assessments themselves—must be of high quality. Whether you are completely new to common formative assessments (CFA) or have extensive experience using them, the Common Formative Assessments 2.0 (CFA 2.0) process can help you take your CFAs to the next level of quality. Join Larry Ainsworth to learn how your grade- or course- level teams can collaboratively create high-quality assessments that reveal student learning of targeted standards within a curricular unit of study. Using the all-new CFA 2.0 ten-step process, teacher teams will intentionally align their common formative assessments to the levels of rigor in the standards. Resulting student feedback will enable educators to gain credible evidence of student learning that they can use to adjust instruction and that students can use to adjust their learning strategies.
