Webinar Date: March 07,2017

Webinar Description

School and district-wide use of classroom-based formative assessment is an essential part of informing teacher planning and instruction, as well as meaningful student achievement. In this webinar, Francis (Skip) Fennell, L. Stanley Bowlsbey Professor of Education and Graduate and Professional Studies Emeritus, McDaniel College, shares a framework for school and district-based leaders to develop elements of leadership while establishing a grade-level or school-based learning community focusing on everyday use of formative assessment.

Topics include:
• Assessment literacy and the use of particular tools to guide and monitor the use of the formative assessment techniques presented
• How ongoing, everyday use of the “Formative 5” intersects with summative assessment data and frame assessment decisions
• A leadership framework to guide successful implementation of the “Formative 5,” including coaching, navigating relationships, learning communities and adult learners

All school and district-based leaders, and K-12 educators are invited to watch this recorded webinar.
