Free Webinar Series to Discuss Developing Teachers’ Assessment Literacy

AACTE has partnered with Measured Progress to provide a series of three webinars on a new requirement in the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accreditation standards: facilitating and measuring candidates’ assessment literacy. This webinar series, “Developing the Assessment Literacy of Teacher Candidates,” is free and open to the public.

Stuart Kahl, founder of Measured Progress, will lead each of the webinars. He will be joined by Emerson Elliott, director of special projects for CAEP, in the first webinar; Susan B. Nolen, professor of learning sciences and human development at the University of Washington College of Education, in the second webinar; and Andrea Whittaker, director of teacher performance assessment at the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity, in the third. The webinars will be held July 8, July 29, and August 19 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Assessment literacy can be broadly defined as the knowledge and skills educators need to identify, select, or create assessments optimally designed for various purposes and to analyze, evaluate, and use the evidence generated by these assessments to improve programs and advance student learning.

Measured Progress is a New Hampshire-based, not-for-profit assessment services company dedicated to helping educators improve student learning by connecting assessment, data, and instruction.
