Learning Your ABC's: Assessment Best Practices for Christian Schools

June 15-17, 2015
Concordia University Wisconsin


Assessment is the big buzz word in education: formative and summative, formal and informal, using assessment to drive instruction as well as new high-stakes state and national assessments.


This practical seminar will build the knowledge, skills and confidence of every teacher. Expert presenters will engage and equip seminar participants with real-life examples and tools. Research-based practices to prepare students for assessments, such as the Smarter Balanced and PARCC, will also be provided. Finally, the entire seminar will be presented with the unique challenges and opportunities of Christian schools in mind.


Christian School Educators:  There is a $150 discount grant available to the first 40 Christian school educators who register before April 15, 2015. In addition, MTM Project members are eligible for an extra $50 seminar discount per person AND a $100 EDGP course discount during that same time period.
