STUDENT ASSESSMENT AND BEYOND THE BUBBLE SHEET

Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Woodcroft School Auditorium 13750 Woodcroft Ave NW Edmonton, AB

How do we really know we have a great school? 

Provincial test results, report cards, school websites and newsletters, samples of student work... how do we really know we have a great school and that our children are getting what they need? Sometimes it's hard to sort through all the messages we receive and really figure out how our children are doing so we can plan to support them and the schools that serve them.

This conversational session will explore different kinds of information that communicate student learning and what this information tells us about both our children and the schools they attend.

Agenda:
6:30pm Refreshments
7 - 8:30pm Presentation

Who Should Attend?: 
Parents, trustees, and the general public

Fee: ​​$10 per person
