What’s going on?

Led by assessment expert, trainer, professional developer, and classroom teacher Marie Cora, LINCS is assembling a small cohort tasked with identifying and reviewing online formative assessment tools for adult education classrooms. Formative assessment tools are defined as instruments that allow a teacher to adapt their teaching strategies based on the data they collect. 


What would I be doing?

Members of the cohort will use and analyze one formative assessment tools a month for three months. Members will then review the tools, describing their experiences with the tools in a classroom setting.


Group members will be expected to thoroughly review their assigned resources, as well as contribute to facilitated conversations within the cohort. Reviews will be collected in a catalog to be shared online with the LINCS Communities of Practice.


When’s this happening?

The project will run from January through April, beginning with an orientation webinar on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at 2:00 pm EST. 


What should I do if interested?

We are excited to kick off this unique project and hope that you can join us!
