All the talk of closing the achievement gap in schools obscures a more fundamental issue. In sharing lessons, anecdotes, and cautionary tales from his own experiences revamping assessment procedures in the classroom, Myron Dueck offers a variety of practical strategies.

Learning outcomes include:

  1. Critically examine the fairness and effectiveness of grading homework assignments.
  2. Ensure that grades measure what the students know without punishing them for factors outside their control.
  3. Learn assessment strategies that motivate students and help them succeed.

The cost for CESA 10 districts to attend this event is $75 per participant.

The cost for all others to attend this event is $400 per participant.
