Your school aims to create curious lifelong learners, but do the student measurements you use reflect that goal? It’s time to think about your school’s approach to assessment—that is, how you measure evidence of learning and achievement.

Leave ready to dive deeper into your school’s approach and consider the changes you could make moving forward.

A vital piece of ISM’s Faculty Growth and Evaluation Framework is the use of growth coaches—peers and leaders who help teachers achieve their growth goals, with no tie to each individual’s evaluation.
How do great coaches work with their teachers? They start by asking the right questions.
These questions provide space for the teacher to step back and examine their thinking or actions, often helping them see their actions from a different perspective or imagine a new solution to a challenge. Discover how you can help your growth coaches ask the right questions to become successful supporters for your teachers.
It’s time to think about your school’s approach to assessment—that is, how you measure evidence of learning and achievement. Explore how to assess learning that illustrates true comprehension and make changes moving forward. Changing how you think about assessment and evidence of learning can help alter these attitudes about learning and achievement, and shift the focus to measures that matter.
