Assessment Session

Assessment: This session will be organized around the same Guiding Question that shapes the assessment chapter in the framework: Am I using this assessment for the purpose for which it is intended? The session will address the purposes of assessment, with a particular focus on the importance of formative assessment to inform instruction. Presenters will discuss multiple measures of student performance and how classroom and local district assessments may interface with state assessments in the future.

Presentation Team:

  • Nicole Gilbertson, UC Irvine History Project
  • Jacqueline Washington, Newport Mesa USD
