MIAMI: 27 June - 3 July 2017 | LONDON: 19-25 June 2017
Facilitators: Melissa Schaub and Lauren Mehrbach (Miami); Bambi Betts (London)

Recent research suggests that effective assessment practices can dramatically improve student learning. A comprehensive assessment plan, which outlines policies and practices for determining the extent of student learning as well as promoting it, is an essential component of an effective school and one which many international schools are lacking. In this unique course, participants will:

  • Examine the reasons why it is necessary to rethink current assessment practices
  • Practice with some of the key learnings of the last decade regarding assessment
  • Identify and work with the four major categories of assessment in international schools including both internal and external
  • Practice developing an assessment policy
  • Practice designing a results-driven decision-making model, based on four types of data
  • Explore the key leadership strategies leading to an effective school-wide assessment plan

In order to access course materials, participants are required to bring a laptop computer with wireless internet capability and appropriate adapters to this course.
