The eAA is pleased to note this new National Conference on Formative Assessment and below you will find information about the event taken from the website. Please do get in touch with us if you are planning to attend.
“Effective formative assessment is more than just connecting the dots. It’s leveraging the synergy of your most important resources—teachers—to help students succeed in school and beyond. At our premier Formative Assessment National Conference, sponsored by Learning Sciences Dylan Wiliam Center, you’ll discover how to tap into your school’s unique mix of intellectual and creative resources to unleash the power of formative assessment, a set of vital strategies to keep students highly engaged and invested in their own academic growth.
We’re talking balance, motivation, intention, strategy—and yes, evidence!
Set in the heart of Orlando at the DoubleTree by Hilton at the entrance to Universal Orlando, February 27-28, Dr. Dylan Wiliam and a host of expert associates will demystify formative assessment, introducing strategies and techniques to empower educators and activate learners. Spend two mornings learning directly from Dr. Wiliam, the world’s leading formative assessment authority, and build your own agenda with two of six powerful breakout sessions designed to prepare teachers, leaders, and coaches to reap the immediate and long-term rewards of integrating strategic formative assessment in schools and classrooms.”
