Seminar Focus

    This statewide seminar is the second in a series of collaborative events co-hosted by Assessment Technology, Incorporated and Arizona school districts with the participation of expert panels comprised of local education leaders. The fall seminar, co-hosted by Creighton School District, focused on implementation of the Arizona Framework for Educator Effectiveness. This spring seminar, co-hosted by Queen Creek Unified School District, will focus on the implementation of the AZCCRS and the ways in which ATI, school districts and charter schools in Arizona are planning for implementation success. The seminar will address key questions including:

  • What kinds of technological innovations are available to assist us in facilitating the full integration of AZCCRS aligned assessment, reporting and instruction?
  • How can we enhance instructional efficiency and instructional effectiveness as we transition toward full implementation of the AZCCRS?
  • How can AZCCRS aligned differentiated instruction be implemented to facilitate the mastery of specific standards?
  • What are the most effective ways to introduce new technology-enhanced item types within the context of instruction and assessment?
  • In what ways can technology help facilitate new approaches to curriculum development and instructional practices in alignment to the AZCCRS?

 

The seminar will provide an up-close look at innovations in Galileo technology and research initiatives designed to support implementation of the AZCCRS. A panel discussion comprised of local leaders will share their approaches to AZCCRS implementation along with their insights and successes. Following the presentations and panel discussion there will be a question and answer period.
