Date: September 12, 2023

Time: 05:00PM - 06:30PM

You must be registered to participate!

Not all assessments are created equal. However, when formative assessments that focus on teacher and student engagement and high-quality reading instruction are prioritized, the process can be both humanizing and empowering. Join Laurie Elish-Piper, Mona W. Matthews, and Victoria J. Risko as they explore reading assessments created with an equity mind-set, making visible teachers’ decision-making and students’ strengths and needs. They will share samples of assessments that can be embedded in daily and authentic learning activities—assessments that account for the complexity of reading while also capturing students’ identities, cultural histories, knowledge, and lived experiences.
