  11. Assessment: Student Self-Efficacy—Where Are We Going? How Am I Doing? What Do I Need to Do?

    Virtual Event |  March 1–December 31, 2021

Studies show this may be one of the greatest factors for student motivation and engagement. In this session, participants examine essential characteristics for building student self-efficacy and what those elements mean for virtual and in-person practices. Tim Brown explores a variety of examples and strategies for how to use them.

  12. Assessment: Just-in-Time Assessment: Gathering Information and Taking Action

    Virtual Event |  March 1–December 31, 2021

    We are all looking for ways to gather information about our learners, so we can make the very best decisions to meet their needs right away. Many of our predictable sources of information are either not available (standardized testing data, for example) or have shifted because of our current reality. This session explores assessment that can meet students where they are, so educators can determine intentional and thoughtful next steps. Participants discuss formative assessment—with a special focus on pre-assessment—that readies us to serve our students in the best ways possible.
