Online, Self-Paced Learning Modules
The Assessment Learning Modules are aligned to Assessment Literacy Standards (endorsed by the Michigan State Board of Education in May of 2016) that are the core of all MAC professional learning opportunities. We developed the Assessment Literacy Standards to inform educators about sound assessment policy, support credentialing opportunities and inform public policy.
Nationally known assessment experts Ed Roeber, Ellen Vorenkamp, and Carol Commodore, and collaborative inquiry expert Amy Colton developed the 9-module series, which also includes ideas and support from Rick Stiggins, Margaret Heritage, Susan Brookhart, Carol Commodore, Ken O’ Conner, Jim Gullen, and James Popham. Editing was done by Nancy Fahner, an educational consultant skilled in professional development and collaborative learning.
Each module provides an opportunity for engagement, reflection and access to tools and other resources that can continue to support professional learning.
