Assessing for Learning: Unlocking Mathematical Thinking

Date of broadcast: Tue, 11/13/18

Assessment tools provide valuable feedback, but many traditional techniques assess mathematical thinking skills in retrospect, rather than real-time. Educators, meanwhile, must gauge students’ computational thinking and learning potential, not just rote memorization and mechanical know-how. With the right learning data on student needs and accomplishments, school leaders can transform classroom practice.

Attend this web seminar to learn how Waukegan Community Unit School District #60 in Illinois employs a continuous and connected approach to improving assessment, instruction and learning. Presenters will also share strategies to bolster academic readiness using relevant data, and how to promote 21st century problem-solving and create student-centered learning environments.

Scheduled speakers:

Matt Foster
Mathematics Coordinator
Waukegan Community Unit School District #60

David Woods
Director, Curriculum and Reporting
DreamBox Learning

Who will benefit: School and district leaders, as well as classroom educators. Anyone may attend.
