How might we take action on current best practices and research in learning and assessment? What if we make sense of new ideas and learn how to apply them in our own practice? Let’s learn together; deepen our understanding of formative assessment; make our thinking visible; push ourselves to be more flexible; and more. We will explore some of the actions taken while tinkering with ideas from Tim Kanold, Dylan Wiliam, Jo Boaler and others, and we will discuss and share their impact on learning.

  1. I loved this workshop, but I have a question? How did you go about setting the levels for targeted competencies! You shared about a student who could do the two lower levels but not the third. And I loved the leveled expectations, where did you start?


    • Leading Learners to Level Up is inspired by The Falconer by Grant Lichtman and research from Tom Guskey, Doug Reeves, Bob Marzanno, James Popham, and Dylan Wiliams. I would recommend reading:

      • Transformative Assessment in Action: An Inside Look at Applying the Process, Jame Popham
      • Embedding Formative Assessment: Practical Techniques for the K-12 Classroom, Dylan Wiliam
      • Practical Solutions for Serious Problems in Standards-Based Grading, Tom Guskey

      To get started, you could have your teachers read some of the blog posts and use the learning progressions for the math practices.

      Thanks for asking.
