Anti-bias Assessment Practices Workshop

Friends Central School  |  Wynnewood, PA

November 11, 2016

8:30am-3:00pm

 

Description

This one day workshop will explore the complex topic of student assessment by looking at current research trends in assessment, examples of how to create anti-bias assessment protocols, and tools and frameworks you can use in the classroom. We will consider both formative and summative assessment strategies.

 

Lead Facilitators:

Jenna Chandler-Ward, Multicultural Teaching Institute/ Meadowbrook School 
Elizabeth Denevi, Mid West Ed
Mariama Richards, Friends Central School

Questions we will consider include:

  • What are the skills we look for when assessing students?

  • What does completion of a concept or skill look like?

  • How do we as teachers place value on specific ways of mastering material?

  • How do we make adjustments for particular students to succeed?

  • How do expectations influence what we assess and how we interpret student learning?

Please bring a current assessment from your own practice that you would like to work on.
