Now that most of us have found a rhythm to this unique school year, it is time to narrow our focus and maximize impact by setting goals, measuring progress, and using assessment to drive instruction. This Let's Talk session will focus on assessment - the testing typhoon of our pandemic school year. We will take time to hear from ORTIi Coach, Dr. Jon Potter and join colleagues around the state in smaller group sessions to hear the nuts and bolts of what's really working and what's not working for assessments and how we are using the results to drive instruction. Please mark your calendar, register through the link below, and plan for a rich, one-hour session on assessment. It is through our collective experience and knowledge that best practices emerge, and this is the cutting edge of assessments during the COVID school year.
