Join us in re-imagining classroom and district assessment systems that propel student learning

Did you know that about 80% of a student’s assessment experience is determined by local educators? With that fact front and center, this “must-participate” event will feature opportunities for participants to envision and plan for assessment systems that support rigorous standards, ambitious teaching, and higher levels of student learning. Hear from experts, reflect on your practice, and work in collaboration toward a better assessment future.

Want to know more?

This two-day event will pair presentations by national and international assessment experts with workshops with district practitioners as we explore together how we might adopt assessment approaches and systems that truly support all children to achieve and become capable learners. (Optional day 3 available.)

We welcome a respected team of state, national, and international assessment experts, including:

  • Andrew Ho
  • Margaret Heritage
  • Jay McTighe
  • Edward Roeber
  • And many Michigan assessment leaders!

Attend alone or come as a team! 
Educators and policy makers at all levels are invited to attend, but we encourage schools/district to register and work in teams of 3 or more. The event will feature time to work together toward addressing your own unique opportunities. Plus, the MAC will support your team’s work after the conference through private consultation and group engagements designed to keep the collaboration going.

Draw lessons from the past to change the future: 

  • Assist local districts to improve their instructional programs to spur higher student achievement and eliminate gaps
  • Understand the keys to quality assessment that support students’ equitable access to learning
  • Appreciate the role assessment plays in all facets of student learning
  • Envision an assessment system that accurately serves the information needs of students, parents, and educators
  • Create strategies to advance an assessment system that serves the information needs of multiple audiences
  • Raise awareness of what it means to be assessment literate
