Using Formative Assessments to Achieve Summative Success

Nov 19, 2015 at 2:00pm CT

As districts across the nation receive official performance results of new high-stakes, next-generation assessments, student scores have dropped due to the rigor of the new standards and the perils of assessment transition. Join us for a webinar that explores the research and methods of utilizing formative assessment in daily classroom instruction to achieve success in high-stakes assessments. Crucial to transforming achievement is developing familiarity, rigor, just-in-time intervention, and routine through technology-enhanced items, particularly in STEM courses.

Moving Beyond Growth Mindset

Nov 10, 2015 at 2:00pm CT

Social-emotional learning. Noncognitive skills and strategies. Mindset. These buzzwords are often used and considered important, but are rarely translated into enduring practice. If classroom practice does not change, then these concepts are just theory, just “things” to discuss.

2015 SUMMER WORKSHOPS

Reshape. Enhance. Transform.

Join us for an exclusive workshop focused on transforming student achievement outcomes by reshaping the way students interact with content and concepts, and enhancing mathematics instruction. The workshop will feature a glimpse into an educator’s course developed by the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin on how mindset, productive persistence and other social-emotional factors influence math success, and how these can be intentionally shaped to support student learning.

Moving Beyond Growth Mindset

Nov 6, 2014 at 2:30pm CT

Research demonstrates that what students think about their potential as learners—and what educators think about their students’ learning capacity—dramatically affect outcomes. A growth mindset is just the beginning.
