Facilitator Series - Embedding Formative Assessment Into Professional Learning

Professional Growth Opportunities

Just as in classrooms, embedding formative assessment within professional learning is key to understanding learners. This understanding allows facilitators to respond and differentiate the learning experience and allows participants to own their own learning. Setting clear learning outcomes, developing processes for gathering and interpreting evidence of learning, and giving quality feedback are the main components for the day.

A quality facilitator:

  • Sets clear learning outcomes and challenges participants to set their own learning goals relative to those outcomes.
  • Checks for individual and group understanding through facilitation processes that expose learner thinking.
  • Gives and receives feedback for professional growth.
  • Opens a space for adults to own and reflect on their learning.

Participants will:

  • Understand formative assessment through the work of Wiliam, Davies and Hatti.
  • Apply formative assessment strategies to planning for adult learners.
  • Learn to engineer assessment processes within a framework of Guskey’s five levels of professional learning evaluation.
