Talk About Assessment: What parents need to understand

The next Speaker’s Series event is Wednesday November 27 at Nepean HS.

Assessment is always in the news. Whether it’s a story about the lowest disappointing test scores or the furor over policy changes that prevent teachers from using zeros. As a parent, what do I need to know about current assessment policies and practices? Why are these changing?

In this session, Damian Cooper will discuss recent changes in provincial policy, as well as the impact on teachers’ classroom practice. He will also address the question, “What is the mission of Kindergarten to Grade 12 education in the digital age?”
