WASHINGTON, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, October 12, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting a Leadership Webinar to explore new systems of assessments and possibilities under ESSA.
The new federal K-12 education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), presents states with historic opportunities to increase flexibility around systems of assessments and educator development systems.
What can these new systems of assessments look like under ESSA, and how can we build educator capacity around these new assessments? Join this webinar to hear from assessment experts Brandt Redd and Bonnie Hain on how states can build systems of high-quality assessments that drive student learning and provide teachers with real-time, meaningful information about a student's progress toward competency attainment.
iNACOL COO Bruce Friend said, "By taking advantage of the new flexibilities under ESSA, such as rethinking systems of assessments and building educator capacity, states can transform K-12 education toward personalized, student-centered learning."
This webinar is free to attend—participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
