When you assess what matters most, you will improve what matters most.

Teachers will learn how to identify and implement common assessments, refine instruction based on analysis of data, and work together to continuously improve their practice. Teacher leaders will learn to guide their peers towards better teaching, grounded in a deep understanding of students’ strengths and challenges. School leaders will create an assessment-informed school culture, where both teachers and students use formative data to direct and enhance their learning.
