LJA Welcomes Rick Wormeli, Oct 2014

Our learning community is excited to welcome Rick Wormeli to our campus for three days next month. We are looking forward to hearing more about how we can improve our differentiation strategies, particularly for assessments. At Le Jardin Academy, we use formative and summative assessments to report on each students’ learning process. We also use descriptive feedback in the form of criteria rubric descriptor marks and additional comments during this learning continuum, to help students gain skills and knowledge in each content area. One thing we can do -perhaps universally as educators- is consistently view scores and feedback that students receive as tools for reflecting on what we as educators need to do moving forward, to differentiate for and further authenticate student learning. Please take a look at what Rick Wormeli has to say about Formative and Summative Assessments:
