Determining What Children Know: Dynamic versus Static Assessment – Ryan Dent and Catherine Fosnot
This workshop will provide opportunities to examine how to assess in powerful ways in the moment during conferrals and when examining students’ work samples. Participants will also learn about our new formative assessments with teaching implications and our new progress monitoring tools. These new assessments (just released this summer) are crafted to pick up data that will genuinely inform teaching and all participants registered for this session will have free access to our assessment package and web-based assessment app for one month following the session.
