TED CEC Conference Session on Using Formative and Interim Assessments to Improve Student Learning

Please join NCEO’s Kathy Strunk for a session at the Teacher Education Division (TED), Council on Exceptional Children (CEC) Conference in Savannah, Georgia, titled Using Formative and Interim Assessments to Improve Student Learning.  This session will be held on November 9 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

This interactive session will explore the relationship between grade-level standards, and formative and interim assessments, and how they intersect to improve results for students with disabilities. In a standards-based system, educational standards serve as the hub for all components of the system (i.e., curriculum, instruction, and assessment). The standards provide the basis for establishing learning expectations, and guide curricular and instructional decisions.  Formative and interim assessments aligned to standards can provide the data that guides effective instruction and successful learning experiences.

The identified session outcome for participants is to gain a deeper understanding of how to effectively use formative and interim assessments to improve student learning.  The session will also highlight NCEO resources and technical assistance that are particularly relevant to special education teacher educators.
