Making the Most of High Stakes Tests
Are you an educator who laments the required high-stakes test? Struggling to find value in a summative assessment designed by someone other than the classroom teacher? In this workshop, you will learn some ways to mine the test for valuable information (not just data), engage your students in an exploration of what they will learn, and frame the content of your course in a new way. Time will be allotted for design of curricular materials for you to use with your students so please bring or have digital access to resources and materials you use at the beginning of the school year.
