46. Progress Checks for Instructional Decision-Making and Student Self-Assessment

Program: SCI: Leadership

Audience: Building and District Administrators

Dates: 3/20/2019

Overview:

Once the essential learning has been prioritized and there are assessments in place, teams will be meeting to make instructional decisions that will advance learning for their students. Additionally, an essential component of students taking on the learning is that the students themselves are assessment capable. We will discuss ways to help students better take on their own learning so that they can identify what it is they are learning, what it means to be successful, where they are currently, and what are their next steps. Leaders must think about how they will support their team and develop a plan to monitor the following critical questions :

- How will we respond when students don’t learn?

- How will we respond when students do learn?

- How will we help our students be assessment-capable learners?

Outcomes:

- Define assessment-capable learners

- Describe strategies for developing assessment-capable learners

- Explain structures that can support a wide variety of students needs as identified by assessments

- Develop a plan for supporting teams as they use assessment to inform instruction, and plan supports for a wide range of student needs
