Assessment Learning Network


A Professional Learning Community

The Assessment Learning Network (ALN) is a professional learning community of members from Michigan’s professional education organizations. The goal of the ALN is to increase the assessment literacy of all of Michigan’s professional educators. Through engagement and shared perspectives, this learning community invests in Michigan’s children and educators by using assessment to culti­vate capable learners.

The schedule of 2021-22 ALN sessions is coming together, and will be ready to share soon! This year will feature virtual events with one live event in Spring 2022. Popular author and speaker Jay McTighe has been invited to kick off our season in Fall 2021 (date TBD) with a look at planning and implementing classroom assessment to accelerate learning.

The ASSESSMENT LEARNING NETWORK is a unique concept that:

  • Is supported by the Michigan Assessment Consortium (MAC) and the Michigan Department of Education
  • Brings together the leadership from Michigan’s professional education associations
  • Offers regular engagements where diverse education leaders learn together about the power of assessment to support the development of our students, their educators and our state.
