New Assessment Task Force Seeks Input From Field
What do teachers and school leaders need to know about assessment, and how are preparation programs helping preservice educators to develop assessment literacy? And once program completers are employed, how can school districts support their ongoing growth?
To explore these questions, Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) has established a Task Force on Assessment Education for Teachers, on which I serve along with others involved in preservice and in-service educator preparation. And we want to hear from you!
To inform discussion by the task force, we invite leaders of educator preparation programs (for both teachers and school leaders) to respond to an online survey about assessment in your programs. To participate, please contact Monica Cox at email@example.com by Wednesday, November 18, and you will be sent a link to complete the electronic survey.
The survey should be completed by whoever knows where and how assessment is covered in your preparation programs—so please invite your most appropriate colleague to participate. The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
NWEA has partnered with Education Northwest to conduct this survey of assessment offerings in colleges of education; another survey will poll superintendents to capture their perspectives as well.
Reports of the survey results will not identify individuals or institutions by name. If you would like to receive a copy of the final report of the survey results, please contact Charity Kreider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your input!
