PD Focused on Formative Assessment Practices
Master classroom formative assessment practices to maximize student engagement! Use formative assessment district-wide to prepare all educators (regardless of grade level or subject area) to continuously monitor student learning, adjust classroom instruction in the moment, and build local capacity to sustain instructional shifts over time.
BONUS: Classroom formative assessment practices complement your use of MAP data!
