  1. Standards-Based Reporting and Formative Assessment: On the Road to a Highly Reliable Organisation DVD

    This video clearly explains how to design and interpret several types of formative assessments, how to track student progress and assign meaningful marks, even if a school uses a traditional marking system. Dr Marzano focuses on 1) the inadequacy of the 100-point scale, 2) designing measurement topics, 3) computing final status on measurement topics, 4) traditional marking practices in a formatively based system, and 5) new forms of report cards for formative assessment. Includes the video and a CD with materials to support team or individual professional learning, handouts, resources and web links.

  2. Defensible Differentiation: What Does It Take to Get It Right

    Differentiated instruction was designed to address the instructional needs of diverse students. However, simply claiming to practise differentiation will not meet those needs. In this keynote session Carol Ann Tomlinson calls on teachers to implement best practices regarding curriculum, assessment, instruction and learning environment – and to learn how these factors interrelate. She examines and invites educators to scrutinise their practices in applying the four foundational principles of effective differentiation. This package includes a 72-minute DVD with the video session and a CD with materials to support team or individual professional learning, an excerpt from the book On Excellence in Teaching and relevant web links.

  3. Raising Questions and Finding Answers in Our Grading Practices DVD

    In his Raising Questions and Finding Answers in Our Grading Practices breakout session (from the 9 July 2009, Professional Learning Communities at Work™ Institute in Denver, Colorado), Tim Brown refers to grading as “one of the most controversial topics in our schools.” A grade represents a lot more than just the student’s grasp of the material; it also represents achievement of a standard, general aptitude, effort, improvement, compliance, attitude and participation. Brown argues that teachers in general haven’t taken the time to reflect on their grading practices, and that teachers who are too busy to reflect and attempt other options will ultimately contribute to the failure of some students.

  4. The Last Frontier: Tackling the Grading Dilemma DVD

    Ken O'Connor is an independent consultant who specialises in issues related to the communication of student achievement, especially grading and reporting. In this video presentation, Ken submits that traditionally, grading encourages competition rather than collaboration and results. In order to get grades that are accurate, meaningful, consistent and supportive of learning, he outlines eight fundamental grading guidelines that will move traditional grades to standards-based. He also details how to implement them and support your staff as they change their attitudes and approaches toward grading - particularly in the middle years and secondary school. Includes 99 minute-DVD with presentation and accompanying CD-ROM with presentation handouts and supporting resources.

  5. Embedding Formative Assessment Professional Development Pack

    Written by Professor Dylan Wiliam and Siobhan Leahy, Embedding Formative Assessment is a two-year professional development pack for schools and colleges that contains all the materials needed for two years of research-based professional development. This pack is based on the premise that all teachers can improve their practice by developing their use of assessment for learning (AfL) through membership of a teacher learning community (TLC). It presents educators with both the challenge and the support needed to embed formative assessment teaching practices consistently across a whole school.

  6. Effective Supervision: Supporting the Art and Science of Teaching DVD

    In this DVD, researcher and author Robert J. Marzano presents a framework for observing classroom instruction based on the questions and frameworks he first laid out in The Art and Science of Teaching. Marzano presents a detailed observation protocol and demonstrates how to use it, not only as a tool for analysing classroom instruction but also as a starting point to encourage professional dialogue among teachers. This is an essential tool for supervisors, administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders, and PLC's.

  7. Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom (DVD)

    In this video, author and educator Myron Dueck explains how assessment and grading policies can be tailored to focus on what really matters: student understanding of content. You'll visit a variety of secondary classrooms where teachers are using Dueck's practical strategies to assess and grade smarter, not harder. Rather than grading every assignment regardless of its purpose, the teachers organise lessons according to learning goals and identify clear levels of performance to keep the focus on learning. Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom shows how well-planned and well-executed assessment and grading policies can contribute to, rather than impede, student achievement.
