This course shows educators how to shift focus and learn how to use assessment for learning. Throughout this course, you will be introduced to the concept of assessment for learning. You'll learn the teacher behaviors that promote student learning and support sound assessment, which the author calls the "Be's." These principles come from the many practices that teachers can adapt to promote assessment that enhances student learning, rather than ranking student achievement. As you consider the implications of these ideas for your own practice, as well as for the overall practices in your schools and districts, you'll create a plan for your ongoing professional growth in assessment literacy.
