Implementing Performance Assessment: FairTest Webinar
Join us for a webinar on Feb 12, 2017 at 8:00 PM EST.
Join Ann Cook of the New York Performance Standards Consortium and Monty Neill of FairTest in this free webinar about performance assessment,
Sunday, February 12, from 8 – 9 PM EST.
The Consortium's public high schools ignore most state-mandated tests and, instead, award diplomas based on completion of four performance tasks and their coursework. Ann will discuss the tasks, how teachers prepare students for them via project-based learning, and the consortium’s many successes.
Monty will explain how changes in the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) presents opportunities at the district and state levels to overhaul assessment and provide additional examples from around the nation.
There will be plenty of time for questions.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
