Assessment for Learning

  Facilitated by Jan Chappuis

Learning is an unpredictable process and instructional correctives are part of the normal flow of attaining mastery in any field. If we are still teaching as though “plan, instruct, and assess” will cause learning, or if our pacing guides are designed on the basis of that belief, we will miss the heart of teaching and the whole intent of formative assessment. Many of our inherited assessment practices fight with our desire to build an effective “feedback loop” into instruction. in this webinar, author Jan Chappuis examines those practices and suggests ways to change them.

      Jan Chappuis has been an elementary and secondary teacher as
      well as a curriculum developer in English language arts,

      years, she has written books and developed workshops focused on

      Strategies of Assessment for Learning
    , (Pearson, 2014, 2nd ed.) and co-author with Rick Stiggins, Judith Arter, and Steve Chappuis of Classroom Assessment for Student Learning: Doing It Right-Using It Well (Pearson, 2012, 2nd ed.).
