Are students learning? It’s a question that has drawn a lot of discussion and debate. The only way we can answer this monumental question is by assessing what students know in a valid and reliable way.
To keep up with cutting-edge research and innovative solutions that can inform dialogue and decisions aimed at improving student learning, the READ Trust Fund team has recently participated in three noteworthy learning events. At SXSW EDU 2018, we presented on the contributions of the READ Trust Fund Program to the area of student assessment over the past decade, and discussed with fellow policymakers and practitioners innovations in learning, teaching, and assessment. Our participation in the Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness (SREE) Conference and the Innovations in Testing Conference added to our collected body of evidence on the latest research and tools in assessment and related education topics.
We summarize interesting insights and innovations from these events.
