With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards and the increasing prevalence of computers, tablets, and internet access in the classroom, educational assessment is an a period of rapid change. Join us as we discuss why technical terms like formative, summative, criterion-referenced, norm-referenced, and benchmark are useful conceptual categories, but in practice have fuzzy borders.
In this webinar you will learn:
• What these assessment distinctions are and what truly matters
• How technology is transforming the test-taking experience and making data more accessible to everyone
• Why assessing the reliability and validity remains crucial but must be approached in a new way
