1. The ELL Assessment Blended Series - Facilitated by SupportEd

Program: RBE-RN (Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network)

Audience: ELL Educators

Dates: 12/18/2017 to 4/9/2018

Starting Soon
Are you interested in creating formative assessments to get a more accurate picture of what your ELLs know and can do and adjust your instruction accordingly?

The ELL Assessment Series is an interactive, professional, blended learning experience. The series begin with one face to face full-day session facilitated by Dr. Diane Staehr Fenner on December 18, 2017. On that day, participants will focus on assessment issues for ELLs, such as validity and reliability, and adding more practical assessment tools to their toolbox.

Participants will continue their journey with a differentiated interactive on-line component – one component for educators in elementary schools and one component for educators at the secondary school level. The self-guided, facilitated on-line component will run from January through March 2018. Each month participants will listen to one recorded webinar, complete an application activity, and take part in an on-line discussion with peers facilitated by Drs. Staehr Fenner and Sydney Snyder. During this on-line portion participants will focus on creating and trying out formative assessments tailored to ELLs at different grade and proficiency levels. Participants will also take a deeper look together at grading ELLs’ classwork and assessments.

The series will conclude with one full-day session facilitated by Dr. Staehr Fenner on April 9, 2018, which will allow participants to learn about considerations in the computer-based assessment of ELLs, share their assessment strategies with others, and plan for the formative assessment of their ELLs for the remainder of the school year.

Upon successful completion of all portions of the ELL Assessment Series (two face-to-face sessions and the on-line component), participants will receive a certificate for 20 CTLE hours from SupportEd.
