Welcome to the LINCS Assessment Group.
The group is a community of practice for adult educators to discuss research and evidence-based practices, instructional strategies, and issues related to assessment; provide information and resources that can be used to develop, expand, and inform the adult literacy field on assessment techniques and issues; and enrich and improve public policies related to assessment by providing an open forum for the exchange of relevant policy ideas.
Topics may include issues such as:
- Identifying and incorporating formative assessment activities in the classroom;
- Connecting classroom formative assessment with the real-world needs of students;
- Developing ways to include formative assessment results for reporting and accountability purposes; and
- Using assessments such as BEST, CASAS, TABE, Accuplacer, and high school equivalency exams, including the GED® and HiSET.
