Today, in an information era, our job is to help our learners navigate a plethora of information and use that information in new and interesting ways to create new options and solve complex problems. Many of today’s standards can only be assessed through performance assessments. This session explores a few different frameworks and recommended criteria to help educators design and use rigorous and relevant assessment processes so we can prepare our learners for a highly technical, global, and information rich world.

Feedback is a powerful practice with incredible potential to increase achievement – both the feedback that teachers offer and students contribute. As a tool to engage learners, teachers use feedback to shift and share responsibility for achievement. Through current research and practical examples, this session will describe the effective and efficient feedback that has most potential to improve learning for students.

Topic: PDE Annual Conference

Designed from the students’ point of view, a learning target describes exactly what students will learn during a lesson, how they will be asked to demonstrate their learning, and what will count as evidence that they have learned it. Learning targets, situated in a “learning target theory of action” (Moss & Brookhart, 2012; 2015), help students, teachers, principals, and central office administrators unify their efforts to improve teacher quality, raise student achievement, and create a culture of evidence-based, results oriented practice.

Topic: Response to Instruction & Intervention

Studies show that we must change from the “old way” of thinking about parental involvement to a “new way” of organizing programs of school, family, and community partnerships. This session will present key concepts, essential structures, and expected results of research-based programs of family and community involvement. The session prepares attendees to develop plans and practices that create a welcoming school and that engage all families—including parents of children with special needs—in ways that help students reach academic and behavioral goals for success in school.
