Assessment Literacy Project
<! -- /.resource-content -->
This site provides online professional development in assessment literacy for educators. The information is organized into a series of modules, each of which begins with a video of Dr. James Popham. Educators also participate in activities and read articles as part of the learning process. Along with other information, this professional learning clearly defines the various types of assessments, their uses, and their purposes in a comprehensive assessment system.
This professional learning resource provides a good introduction to the concept of a comprehensive assessment system, its component parts, why it’s important, and how it can impact instruction.
