Assessment Literacy and the Power of Formative Assessment

Time limit: 365 days
7.5 credits


Full course description

This course which was co-developed by FEA and ETS consists of five Assessment Literacy modules that are intended to help teachers develop and deepen their assessment literacy and understanding of the components of a balanced assessment system.

Each module uses a combination of readings, case studies, and discussion questions. We hope that teachers will be able to work with colleagues in their schools, in a learning community, or in a department- or grade-level team to talk about reactions to the activities; however, we also provide additional resources in the appendices for independent use if collaboration is not available.
