Presented by: Tim Coates
Date(s):
Friday, January 25, 2019 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Session Location:
Stonebridge Hotel 12102-100 Street, Grande Prairie, AB GET DIRECTIONS
About the Session:

Alberta Education is preparing to roll-out new programs of studies over the next few years.  The ministry has announced that these new programs will have as a foundation a “concept-based paradigm”.   What does this mean for the assessment of students? Will this require a major shift in assessment practices or simply minor adjustments?  How will this new paradigm affect reporting practices?

At this session the facilitator will address these and other questions related to assessment and reporting under this new paradigm.  A significant portion of the day will provide time for attendees to plan and share approaches that can be applied to current programs and at the same time be suitable when new programs are rolled out.

Participants are asked to bring along some of their current assessment materials so they can evaluate them in light of learning that will occur at the session.

Lunch is included.

Grade Level:  K-4         Subject Area: All
