In support of our mission to improve student learning and achievement for all students, we address the current circumstances facing our schools in responding to the growing public rejection of racial inequity in American society and call for societal changes that ensure equity of opportunity and safety for Black students and other people of color.
In this session, Susan Brookhart will tie together the previous ALN presentations on balanced assessment systems (by Jim Pellegrino) and formative assessment (by Margaret Heritage) and add insights to help the Assessment Learning Network take action, based on these understandings, to build assessment literacy in Michigan. Specifically, she will prioritize key learning needs for different role groups (e.g., students and their families, teachers, building and central office administrators, and local and state policymakers) and identify key assessment learning resources that already exist. The presentation will close by recommending some actions ALN members might consider, to take advantage of resources that currently exist and to build local resources to fill gaps.
