Proficiency Scales: Ensuring Students Know the Most Important Content Portable Event Package

In this moment, educators are looking to ensure that students learn and retain the most important content. However, identifying that content and expressing it in a learning continuum for instruction, assessment, and grading can be challenging and time-consuming.

Enter the Critical Concepts, a set of learning progressions ready for teachers to use in the classroom right now. These carefully crafted proficiency scales enable teachers to communicate with students and parents about what students know, what they need to learn next, and what they’ve already mastered, using one simple, easy-to-explain document.

In our Proficiency Scales Portable Event Package, Dr. Robert J. Marzano will explain how teachers, leaders, and teams can use proficiency scales, like the Critical Concepts, to streamline instruction, clarify assessment, and enhance grading and reporting during this pivotal time in K–12 education.

Choose this virtual event experience to receive 30-day unlimited access to:

  • One inspiring keynote
  • Four in-depth learning sessions
  • One Q&A session dedicated to timely topics

Each attendee will also receive one set of Critical Concepts scales (grade and content area of the attendee’s choice from a menu of available options) with their registration for this Portable Event Package. Please note that these Critical Concepts proficiency scales are for use only in the attendee’s individual classroom and may not be shared with other educators.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how the Critical Concepts were created through a rigorous analysis of standards documents from across the United States.
  • Discover how proficiency scales organize content into targeted, simpler levels of understanding.
  • Understand how to leverage proficiency scales to communicate achievement and growth to students and their parents.
  • Explore a streamlined system of assessment that allows teachers to provide personalized feedback to students in real time.
