More Free Language-Rich Assessment MOOCs in February

Monday, January 30, 2017

Happy 2017! In February, Understanding Language/SCALE at Stanford Graduate School of Education will start the year by offering the second part of our FREE online courses sponsored by the Hewlett Foundation. These MOOCs aim at helping educators use innovative assessment practices – instructionally-focused formative assessment and curriculum-embedded performance assessments – for deeper learning. They will continue to 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: Registration for the Winter courses for both strands has begun, and there is no pre-requisites to take them.
