Assessment Leadership: Leveraging Performance-Based Assessments for Deeper Learning, part of the SURN Learning Leaders workshop series, is designed for principals, assistant principals, leadership team members, and central office leaders.
The focus in Virginia on a profile of a graduate as a critical thinker, effective collaborator, clear communicator, creative individual, and contributing citizen signifies a shift away from standardized assessments toward more authentic methods of assessing student learning, namely with performance-based assessments. PBAs are not new to education, but the challenge of developing them within a standards-based curriculum is.
This session provides educational leaders grounded insights to work with teachers in creating and using PBAs as part of a balanced approach to classroom assessment and as an integral part of enacting more engaging models of instruction, such as project-based learning.
