Connected Educator Month

Kickoff to Innovations in Assessment

We kicked off the Innovations in Assessment theme for Connected Educator Month on October 5!

We opened the month’s discussion of innovations in assessment by posing two questions:

  1. What innovations in assessment are already happening that more people in education need to know about?
  2. How do the experiences of teachers with the current systems of assessment suggest areas ripe for new innovation?

Participants explored these questions with members of the National Council of Teachers of English Assessment Taskforce who shared selected narratives from the Assessment Story Project, through which hundreds of teachers from around the country have shared their assessment experiences. Participants had the opportunity to respond to the stories, sharing their own experiences, ideas, and questions to collectively shape the agenda for further conversations throughout the month. 

The session was co-facilitated by:
•  Darren Cambridge, NCTE Director of Policy Research and Development 
•  Scott Filkins, English teacher, Champaign Central High School
•  Kathryn Mitchell Pierce, College of Education and Public Service, Saint Louis University
•  Lisa Scherff, English teacher at Cypress Lake High School
•  Peggy O’Neill, Professor of Writing, Loyola University Maryland
