Support Formative Assessments to Measure Student Progress
Please take time to ask your Senators and Representative to support formative assessments to measure student progress. Formative assessments contribute to teachers' knowledge of student learning, students' awareness of their own progress, and teachers’ and students’ knowledge of what to maintain or change to foster learning. Formative assessments -- or multiple ways of reading student progress, done over time and incorporated into the learning process -- are are essential in order to paint an accurate picture of what students know and are able to do.
Please take a few minutes to edit the letter in the template after paragraph two to add a brief personal example demonstrating the importance of evaluating teachers by multiple factors.
