It is widely understood that Standards-based Learning (SBL) is the process of using a set of learning targets (standards) to drive teacher planning and instruction; to drive assessment of student achievement; to drive the specific, descriptive, timely feedback given to students; and to inform the grading and reporting of student achievement. Many schools who embark on an SBL journey make adaptations to best fit the needs of their respective school communities. However, most maintain the understanding that assessment schemes should inform instructional planning for individuals and groups of students, and feedback is instrumental in the improvement process. Participants will explore the importance of developing Assessment Schemes FOR Learning, and the role that feedback plays in ensuring students reach optimal levels of success.
