ACCOUNTABILITY? ALL STUDENTS MEET STANDARDS
We must assess accurately, and use results effectively
in order to make sure studentsreact productively to the assessment results.

How much have our students learned in the past?
Assessment FOR Learning:
How can we help our students learn more in the future?

Our job is to help students believe they’re capable learners
We must help learners discover gifts they didn’t believe they had
We can make success irresistible to our students

Assessment FOR Learning is entirely about delivering that confidence.
ABOVE ALL, DO NOTHING TO DIMINISH HOPE
