In support of our mission to promote assessment knowledge and practice, we offer these Important Considerations for Student Assessment and Reporting/Grading Policies and Guidelines in District Continuity of Learning Plans. We hope they help address the current exceptional circumstances facing schools, and the equally exceptional measures that will be required to address student needs in an equitable way.
From face-to-face professional learning events to self-paced online modules, we offer and support many opportunities for educators to become “assessment literate” and improve their use of effective assessment practices. To get started, take a look at the Assessment Learning Modules, browse our Assessment Learning Network events, explore the Common Assessment Development modules, or acquaint yourself with the Assessment Literacy Standards. You’ll be glad you did!
These self-paced modules are based on the Assessment Literacy Standards for teachers, administrators, policymakers, and students and their families.
Each module provides an opportunity for engagement, reflection and access to tools and other resources that can continue to support educators’ professional learning.
These self-paced modules will help you to learn how to create and use common assessments, step-by-step.
Each module in this series includes a PowerPoint presentation, script, user’s guide, and companion documents. You may use the materials in their original form, or adapt them for local use.
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.
