This is session four of six for the series titled Beginning Teachers: A Guide to Support Your Teaching Journey

NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.

Workshop Description:
Assessment plays a key role in the process of learning by enabling instructors to measure the effectiveness of their teaching and linking student performance to specific learning objectives. Join Dr. Samantha Fecich as she shares strategies to help beginning teachers evaluate different types of assessments and incorporate technology that will motivate students and give them more control over their learning. Participants will also have an opportunity to access done-for-you templates and resources to design an assessment to determine what students learned, how well they learned it, and where they struggled.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate different types of assessments and explain the importance of aligning instruction, learning objectives, and assessment.

  • Explore ways to incorporate technology into assessment that will motivate students and give them more control over their learning.

  • Special Technology Instructions: Participants will need access to an internet device and a non-school, personal Google account. SimpleK12ís Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.

    Assessment: Participants will use the templates and resources provided to design an assessment for the upcoming school year to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
