Webinar: Is the Science Enough?

October 29, 2019 at 2 p.m. CST

Districts around the country are desperately seeking high-quality instructional materials that translate the NGSS into a coherent set of learning experiences to support student learning of the content. But is just a logical learning progression of science standards enough to create a classroom culture that can close persistent opportunity gaps that disproportionately limit students of color and students of poverty? Insights from the learning sciences tell us that agency and belonging are critical to learning. Join in a generative conversation to consider how instructional materials, professional learning, and classroom practice can come together to ensure students of the nondominant culture feel their voice has influence on their own learning and others’ learning and they too are valued members who belong in a community of learners.

"Classroom Assessment as a Learning Experience" 

Posted: September 4, 2019

SAVE THE DATE:  September 18 - 19, 2019

JOIN US for the 3rd National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) Special Conference on Classroom Assessment hosted by CADRE and CU Boulder’s School of Education

We are grateful to the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for their sponsorship of this conference. Their generous support has made it possible for us to achieve the greater vision for this conference. We also thank the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment for donating to the scholarship fund for educators to attend this conference.

The purpose of this special conference is to foster dialogue between education practitioners, policymakers and researchers around implementing principled approaches to developing and using classroom assessment for teaching and learning.  For this third special conference on classroom assessment, we emphasize the importance and role of Research-Practice Partnerships between researchers and education practitioners to advance coherent approaches in the design and uses of classroom assessment.  For fall 2019, this conference will be hosted by the Center for Assessment, Design, Research and Evaluation (CADRE) at the University of Colorado Boulder School of Education in partnership with:

  • Aurora Public Schools

  • Cherry Creek School District

  • Colorado Department of Education

  • Denver Public Schools

  • National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment

About the Conference Theme

This year, the conference will focus on establishing a learning-focused agenda for classroom assessments involving disciplinary experts, educational practitioners, policymakers and researchers.  Our theme, “Classroom Assessment as a Learning Experience,” reflects the focus of this agenda on the importance of embedding classroom assessments in curriculum and instruction.  During this conference, perspectives on the means by which this integration between assessment, curriculum and instruction can take place in the disciplines to foster meaningful learning experiences for both students and teachers will be shared and explored.
