Concurrent presentations will begin at 2:20 p.m.: “The Clinical Competency Inventory: A Valid Performance Assessment Instrument” will present the latest version of the Clinical Competency Inventory, discuss the development of the instrument, and share how you can use it for evaluating the performance of your clinical interns and student teachers. “How to Organize and Facilitate Focus Groups” will provide an overview of how to conduct a focus group in your work, and more.
The closing presentation, “Performance-Based Assessment when edTPA is No Longer Required: Alternative and Lessons Learned” will begin at 3:10 p.m., will discuss how EPPs address the development and use of culminating performance-based assessments in light of edTPA removal in NJ and the region as a certification requirement.
The NJACTE Day of Assessment Conference is part of our overall efforts to increase member engagement, providing a valuable opportunity for faculty, staff, administrators, and students to come together and learn from each other on various aspects of assessment in educator preparation. We hope you will join us.
