February 2016
Purpose: This tool will assist learners in gauging their own experience with standards implementation and determining solutions to common gaps in implementing the standards. Time required: 60 minutes. Preparation: Create table tents with each standard listed to use as part of the discussion and place them on separate tables. Make copies of the following two pages for each participant. Suggested process: Arrange participants in similarly sized groups. Directions Ask participants to work independently to complete the Standards for Professional Learning Self-Assessment on p. 58, providing a rating and noting evidence that informed their rating of each question. Allow five to seven minutes to complete the assessment. Ask table group members to discuss their self-assessment results, moving around the table in round-robin fashion, sharing their responses
