What is CFA 2.0?

CFA 2.0 is a process for intentionally aligning and integrating standards, assessment, instruction, curriculum, feedback, and ongoing data analysis that teachers and students can use to adjust their instruction and learning strategies.

School districts, educational service agencies, and other educational organizations can now build internal capacity by establishing their own team of certified trainers to deliver CFA 2.0 workshops within their region. In addition, participants of CFA 2.0 Certification Training will receive helpful presentation materials and resources, and an exclusive discount on training materials.

Common Formative Assessment processes have developed beyond the 6 steps outlined in Ainsworth’s original Common Formative Assessments into a 10-step process in Common Formative Assessments 2.0 (CFA 2.0).
