Professional Learning Modules for the Common Core State Standards: Assessment Literacy
As part of its Common Core State Standards (CCSS) professional learning module series, the California Department of Education, in collaboration with the San Joaquin Valley County Office of Education, has developed an online module focused on the topic of assessment literacy. The resource is designed to provide educators with knowledge and understanding that supports their ability to use assessment as part of ongoing instruction. The module is organized into seven units, beginning with an introduction to assessment and culminating with a section dedicated to appropriate and effective use of assessment data. Each unit includes examples of the unit topics, ranging from examples of planning CCSS-aligned classroom assessment methods to videos of classrooms illustrating assessment practices in action. The module also includes multiple opportunities for reflection.
