On July 30 and 31, the Allen County school district will host a two-day institute featuring Harvey Silver, Ed.D., and content from his new book, Tools for Thoughtful Assessment.
Silver will present a variety of classroom-tested tools and techniques that teachers can use to address the critical components of assessment. Participants will learn:
- a variety of tools to help make the move from traditional evaluation to assessment for learning
- how to use these tools to assess before, during and at the end of instruction
- how to adapt these tools to meet specific assessment and instructional goals, such as developing clear learning targets, teaching students how to produce high-quality work and helping students monitor their own learning
Participation is open to personnel from any Kentucky school district. For more details, contact Rick Fisher, director of instruction for the Allen County school district.
