Differentiated assessment is the key to helping every student succeed—and no matter what grade you're teaching, this course will give you the tools you need to gather your assessment data quickly and easily.  

You'll begin by exploring strategies for performing pre-assessments, formative (ongoing) assessments, and summative assessments. Next, you'll discover how to identify and share learning goals, gather assessment information, adjust your instruction, and provide feedback to your students. Real-life examples will help you see how differentiated assessment provides direction for improvement, promotes confidence, and motivates your learners to do their best.  

Whether you're a new or experienced teacher, you'll gain skill and confidence as you get hands-on practice in using a wide range of assessment techniques. By the time you've completed these lessons, you'll have a clear roadmap for differentiating your assessments and a wealth of practical ideas you can start using in your classroom right away.

No letter grades will be awarded for this course. Participants will receive either a Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U) grade.
