Notes from the Tch Laureates

With school back in full swing, many of us are thinking in terms of assessments. At just about the halfway mark for the school year, I along with many of my colleagues, are using formative assessments to evaluate student growth and determine next steps to help students meet end-of-year goals. If you’re like me, you’ll appreciate the array of formative assessment resources provided in this week’s newsletter, from a set of quick tips, strategies, and resources, to a video series on formative assessment practices.
