Using Reading Assessment to Drive Improvement

Objective

To empower schools to look at assessment not merely as evaluation but also as diagnostic, summative, and formative events that inform and drive teaching and learning. The impact of effective assessment systems is that teachers can make decisions based on data rather than hunches.

The workshop may be conducted in small- or large-group settings, in hands-on and/or lecture format, depending on client need. Group size could vary from 25 to 100 participants.
