Starting this coming Fall, we will offer a set of FREE online courses sponsored by the Hewlett Foundation to help educators use innovative assessment practices – instructionally-focused formative assessment and curriculum-embedded performance assessments for deeper learning. These MOOCs will focus on instructional improvement and student learning related to both the academic standards and the English Language Proficiency standards.
Participants can develop competencies in two strands: (A) Formative Assessment - Focus on Student Language; and (B) Building and Using Performance Assessments. Detailed information about the courses in each strand can be found on our website at: http://ell.stanford.edu/moocs.
Registration for the Fall courses for both strands has begun. Click on the titles of the courses to register wtih us today!
