Services

Assessment Strategies
Use the best methods available to assess how well your students are learning. EASTCONN staff consultants provide short-or longer-term training or technical assistance to educational organizations considering a variety of methods for assessing student learning and the monitoring student achievement. Services range from providing an overview of the current range of assessment strategies to designing specific tasks for math, science and the writing component of the language arts curriculum. Assessment strategies can range from the informal, such as assisting teachers to learn strategies for reflecting on student work and the implications for improvement of teaching and learning, to the formal, such as the "Making Standards Work" Performance Assessment Model.
