Assessment in Mathematics Institute

This three-day workshop will examine how assessment of mathematical concepts and practices is an integrated and dynamic part of the teaching and learning process and how the value of any assessment is only as good as the use of the assessment data. For Grade 8-12 Math Teachers. 

Assessment is the glue that holds a program together and provides us with short- and long-term evidence of learning. It has been noted that, what we assess communicates what we value and what is inspected, is respected! Come to Warsaw to hone your math assessment skills with mathematics expert and internationally-known consultant Steve Leinwand.

The mathematics standards emphasize the growing importance and impact of formative assessment practices and the inclusion of assessment of the Mathematical Practices. The emerging models of computer-delivered summative assessments are changing how we gather evidence of learning and how we use this evidence to adjust instruction. Teachers are expected to plan and implement rigorous and diverse assessments – both formative and summative – and then gather, interpret and use the results of these assessments to inform instruction and student learning.

When: December 3-5, 2015 (8:30-3:30).

Where: American School of Warsaw
