Validating Approaches for NTGS: LAUSD Pilot
Summer 2015 marks the completion of the pilot year of EA’s assessment literacy and assessment development project at the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The research project’s focus on supporting teacher developed assessments was born from a shared interest in supporting teacher assessment literacy at LAUSD and responding to a national need for high quality measures and processes for Student Learning Objectives (SLOs). At the conclusion of year one, the pilot has accomplished three main goals: the development of high quality assessments across non-tested grades and subjects, the implementation of assessment literacy trainings that can be applied to classroom instruction, and the facilitation of meaningful and collaborative conversations among teachers about standards, curriculum, and instructional goals. The PDF attachment provides a summary of this work and teacher feedback about the process.
