Prioritized Standards & Proficiency Scales

In the standards-era of education, it is critical that schools develop a Guaranteed and Viable curriculum. A guaranteed curriculum means all teachers will teach the same priority standards for the same course and/or grade level. A viable curriculum is one that can be taught in the time available for teachers to do so.

Assessment is first and foremost a teaching tool, not just a grading tool. Developing quality assessments and using a variety of assessment practices is one of the most important aspects of teaching and learning in the standards-based learning environment. In this webinar, participants will look at formative and summative assessments as well as three different types that can be used for either formative or summative purposes.
