The Assessment Landscape in Alberta aac.png

with Sherry Bennett, AAC

Playback webinar here

Assessment in Alberta has as much, if not more, to do with teaching and learning as it has to do with grading and reporting. It is essential to establish links among curriculum, instruction, and assessment if we are to support students in their learning.

This webinar addresses the following four essential questions.
  • How do we know that we are teaching what matters most?
  • How do we know that learning has occurred?
  • How do we engage students in instruction and assessment?
  • How do we help students to do their best?

Post-webinar support documents are available to support professional learning teams with ongoing reflection, conversation, and learning.

This webinar has been developed by the Alberta Assessment Consortium (AAC) in partnership with the Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium (ERLC) and Alberta Education. The materials used in this webinar are from the AAC collection.
