EdWeek Webinar: Measuring Student Learning in Any Setting

We know the assessments used in face-to-face classrooms are not always practical or impactful in remote learning. Thus, the question: How do we assess what our students have learned in distance and blended environments?

In this webinar, Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, John Hattie, and Vince Bustamante guide teachers with examples, strategies, and assessment techniques that can be leveraged regardless of the learning environment. Educators can use decision-making tools to foster student learning, gauge the impact of their teaching, and measure progress and mastery. Aligned to the research-based content found in the authors’ The Assessment Playbook for Distance & Blended Learning (publishes November 17), attendees will learn:

  • “Assessment cookies,” or insights that can be used to inform assessment decisions
  • A “playlist” of distance learning assessment tools to match every learning intention
  • How to use formal tools of evaluation in distance learning to document learning for reporting purposes

Assessment of Learning from a Distance Institute - West Coast

Learning; that’s our goal.  But how do we know if our students have learned what we taught? 

Assessment connects the teaching and the learning and allows us to design additional experiences to close the gap between what students already know and what they need to know.  Distance learning has created an assessment challenge as everything is now “open book.” Thankfully, there are new tools and formats that teachers can use to assess students’ understanding.  These new ways of assessing learning will impact schooling for years to come as they are better and more authentic than many of the tools we had been using before the pandemic.

Distance Learning Leadership Institute: Developing Leadership Mindframes

The Mindframes for Leaders guide decisions that we make. They are habits that will serve us well, long after the pandemic. In this session we explore each of the 10 mindframes and learn from leaders who have challenged themselves to strengthen a specific mindframe. These mindframes, or ways of being, are based on the Visible Learning research.
