[Recommended] Module Conduct Independent Research
What does it mean to be systematic? What does this look like in a learning environment? How does systematic assessment tie into setting instructional goals? Why should teachers engage in systematic assessment? How do they set instructional goals?
Often educators are aware of the need for systematic assessment and consistently setting instructional goals for their learning environment but have no idea of where to begin. How does one start? As a part of your teacher-leader role, you will develop a training PowerPoint presentation for your area teachers, focusing on why this is important, how to begin, and suggesting assessments for your identified age level and purpose. Be sure to encourage your colleagues and present research to back up your material.
