Moving Beyond Making Assessments
Presenter: Doug Wells, Illuminator
Description: The development of high quality assessments is an essential step in maximizing student learning. However, the development of assessments is simply a necessary step towards concise and detailed analysis of data in order to provide the tools to maximize student achievement. This session will explore some of the pitfalls many districts fall into while developing assessment systems, strategies for moving beyond those challenges, and developing a culture of ongoing data driven instruction on a system-wide basis. We will also discuss tools, resources and strategies within Illuminate designed to drive instruction based on student data.
