Limited Capacity seats available

Why start a state performance assessment collaborative? How can a network of practitioners support students’ access to equitable, high-quality performance assessments? What are some steps that can set your collaborative up for success? Session participants will explore these questions through the lens of the California Performance Assessment Collaborative (CPAC) and the Hawai’i Performance Assessment Collaborative (HPAC), state learning networks that have developed in a complementary manner. Each team of facilitators and practitioners will share what they have learned about creating a collaborative that supports high-quality performance assessments, encourages teacher professionalism and leadership, and emphasizes equity for students. Participants will work together to either add to their learning plan (if they attended “Part 1” on Wednesday) or brainstorm next steps that this might be bringing up for them, i.e. how might they start a performance assessment collaborative in their own context or what are their existing policy and practice assets and challenges. Participants will leave this session with concrete ideas for how they can use the power of networks to support high-quality and equitable performance assessments.
