     Event Spotlight

    ​Assessment Capable Learners SpeakerDoug Fisher, Presenter

    Assessment Capable Learners Event

    We all know that collective efficacy is the new number one influence on students’ learning. And there is good reason for that. In part, efficacious teachers ensure that their students are assessment-capable, which means that students understand their current level of performance and compare that with the desired level of learning.

    Join us on February 5, 2019 for our Assessment Capable Learners event.
