During this practical two-and-a-half-day institute, Pearson Assessment Training Institute (ATI) presenters will provide the foundation needed to facilitate effective professional development in classroom assessment using a learning team model of staff development.

This capacity-building training also prepares participants to be able to communicate with others, via short presentations, the importance of classroom assessment accuracy and the benefits of assessment for learning.

What You Will Learn:

This institute is designed to give you the tools you need to introduce the concepts of assessment quality to others and then to manage professional development with the book Classroom Assessment for Student Learning: Doing It Right-Using It Well (CASL) as the central text. We have three broad goals for the session:

  • To deepen your understanding of classroom assessment accuracy and effective use
  • To prepare you to introduce key concepts to others
  • To prepare you to plan and manage learning-team-based study to implement sound classroom assessment practices in your school district

To accomplish those goals, we will do the following during the institute:

  • Deepen your understanding of keys to assessment quality
  • Deepen your understanding of assessment for learning practices
  • Share resources you can use to offer an introductory presentation explaining the concepts of classroom assessment quality and assessment for learning
  • Share resources you can use to plan and manage professional development with the CASL text through learning teams

Approach:

After using various models of professional development, Pearson ATI has centered on the use of learning teams, or study groups, as the most effective and efficient way to help educators become assessment literate. We have developed all our materials (training guides, books and interactive DVDs) for this kind of adult learning and encourage educators to move beyond our tradition of seeing professional development as a series of workshops.

Responsibilities Prior to the Institute:

During the institute, we will prepare you to lead others in learning more about classroom assessment. To prepare for this role, we ask that you complete a reading assignment prior to attending the session. The materials and instructions will be e-mailed to you about four weeks before the institute date.
