While you attend the session, feel free to share your thoughts on this note board. You can continue to jot down notes anytime after the session about anything you found interesting or insightful. Assessment Theory & Practice Notes
"Classroom assessment information should be the basis for important classroom processes and outcomes: students study and work patterns, students understanding of what they are learning, and teachers instructional and grading decisions. Attention to principles of assessment quality, especially validity and reliability, increases confidence in the quality of assessment information." (BrookHart, 2004)

In what ways do you feel the session has changed your way of thinking and/or your approach to teaching?
"I am thinking both more broadly and in a more focused way about assessment--more broadly in that I'm thinking about different types of assessment and different reasons to do assessment, and more focused in that I realize I can start being more conscious and reflective about assessment by starting with one thing I want to assess."
