MAC Reads Webinar

A large number of teams from member school districts of the Michigan Assessment Consortium read and discussed the implications of my book Revolutionize Assessment: Engage Students, Inspire Learning (Corwin, 2014). This hour-long webinar connected all of the teams into a statewide online network for an hour to share their thoughts and ideas about the future of assessment in Michigan. I began by describing what the ideal assessment system must look like in the future to support and certify learning. Then we discussed the emotional dynamics of the assessment experience from the student’s perspective. We agreed that those dynamics are most effectively managed through the consistent application of principles of assessment FOR learning.

  1. I am an educational psychologist, professor of psychology, and former evaluator for the School District of Philadelphia. I have been writing for a while about learner centered assessment, and the use of evaluation techniques to craft assessments that help teachers accomplish the pedagogical goals they have for their classrooms. I recently created my own website about teaching and learning, and wondered if you’d be willing to write a guest piece for my site, and/or allow me to write an article on your site? Keep up the good work! Assessment is key to good practice.
