    Marzano Resources is closely following updates about new or updated COVID-19 guidance from local and state officials related to events and public health. We have proactively taken steps to promote the health and safety of our attendees, associates, and staff.
 

Large-scale assessment and standardized testing have the power to either open or close future doors for your students. Based on the latest research, this training will help you explore and address the ethical challenges teachers face in preparing students for these tests and what can be done to ensure effective test preparation. You’ll review a first-of-its-kind study of over 8,000 assessment items and receive specific recommendations for ELA, mathematics, and science.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the role and profound impact large-scale assessment and high-stakes testing have in students' lives.
  • Study an analysis of 8,804 items from state, national, and international standardized tests.
  • Examine recommendations for item creation in ELA, mathematics, and science based on the analysis findings and ethical testing principles.
  • Provide students with instruction and formative assessment designed to aid them in answering the types of items most likely to appear on large-scale assessments.
  • Receive tools and templates to create formative and summative assessments to measure students' knowledge.
  • Discover a process to create a school- and districtwide approach to help students understand item formats.
