LCAS: Convening III - Student-Designed Assessments (Northern)

Location: Center for Achievement in Public Services (CAPS), 32 College Street, Montpelier, VT

Audience: Leadership Teams

Assessment plays a central role in the assurance of equitable outcomes for all students. Excellent instruction and systemic decision-making require high-quality assessment information. When we ensure that our assessment system provides comprehensive and meaningful information, then decisions about students are more likely to be accurate, students are better able to judge their own performance and set new goals, and families are more knowledgeable about how their children are doing. In order to support the development of high-quality local comprehensive assessment systems (LCAS), the Agency of Education will be holding four convenings, in both northern and southern locations, that will address the knowledge, skills, and practices necessary to implement strong assessment systems. Please see the registration for additional information, dates and times.
