I 100% agree about the purpose of assessment. I wonder, do you think instructional practices have to/should change first before changes in assessment mindset? Struggling to get my teachers to get away from what I would call a more traditional math mindset of needing as many “at bats” as possible and “modeling” problems as our key strategy. I think teachers feel comfortable in it. Do you think that has to change before changes in belief about assessment can happen?
