Formative assessment is critical for showing us what students have and have not learned. However, formative data does not always provide clear, actionable steps for determining where students are on their learning path and how best to move learning forward.

One way to use formative data more effectively is in conjunction with a quality learning progression, which provides a GPS-like view into how learning typically develops over time and where there are potential roadblocks.

In this research-based edWebinar, author and consultant Dr. Karin Hess shows how to use learning progressions most effectively in your district to maximize the instructional value of your formative data.

You’ll also leave this recorded presentation understanding:

  • How progressions connect daily learning targets with long-term expectations
  • How progressions help you better monitor student progress and scaffold learning
  • How to use progressions to promote student agency

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, assessment directors and coordinators, curriculum directors and coordinators, and instructional coaches and specialists.
