PIMSER (Partnership Institute for Math and Science Education Reform) at Eastern Kentucky University will be partnering with Univ. of Louisville to present two 6 hour pre-conference workshops, one for administrators and one for K-12 science teachers. These workshops will focus on key components of the new science assessment system.
Thursday Nov. 9, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Title: Classroom Embedded Assessment: Making Student Thinking Visible
Description: This workshop is designed for teachers in all grade levels and all science disciplines. Assessments that measure three-dimensional science learning are integral to instruction because they allow the teacher to see how students are progressing. Knowing where your students are along a continuum of learning will help you intentionally group and plan for your next instructional steps. Join us to view examples, learn a process, and develop your own classroom embedded assessment by the end of the day. Enrollment is limited to 90 participants.
