The assessment field in K-12 education is in a period of transition — sparked by widespread dissatisfaction with conventional testing formats, changes in technology and developments in the learning sciences.

In an Education Week webinar from 3 to 4 p.m. Oct. 20, two highly regarded experts in assessment innovation will discuss promising new and developing approaches to testing (both formative and summative) and how schools can begin integrating them into instructional programs.

Randy Bennett is the Norman O. Frederiksen chair in Assessment Innovation, ETS; director, Cognitively-Based Assessment of, for, and as Learning initiative (CBAL). Daniel T. Hickey is an associate professor and program director of learning sciences at Indiana University and co-editor of New Frontiers in Formative Assessment.

They will address ways that assessment in schools can become more personalized and better integrated with learning, and used to provide deeper and timely information to educators. They will also make predictions about the future of assessment in schools.
