Supplemental Learning Assessment Quick Reference Guide

(View Complete Item Description)

We have put together a Supplemental Learning Assessment Quick Reference Guide to help teachers address questions regarding the assessment process moving forward. We have included many of the RPT guidelines as well as some of our own details to help clarify questions that may arise. We have also included a research based article from the Canadian Assessment for Learning Network (CAfLN) that really explains assessment practices in a clear and concise way. The CAfLN document aligns very nicely with our Pre-K to 9 guidelines. We have had clearer responses to the 10-12 assessment questions from the RPT however, they do align fairly well with the philosophy behind the CAfLN document (different wording, etc.).
