Topics include:
• Assessment literacy and the use of particular tools to guide and monitor the use of the formative assessment techniques presented
• How ongoing, everyday use of the “Formative 5” intersects with summative assessment data and frame assessment decisions
• A leadership framework to guide successful implementation of the “Formative 5,” including coaching, navigating relationships, learning communities and adult learners

All school and district-based leaders, and K-12 educators are invited to watch this recorded webinar.
