Join us on Sunday night at 8 PM on #edchatri as we look at learning progressions and things like unpacking the standards and the difference between content standards and practice standards. We will also take a look at the effect of obtrusive and unobtrusive assessments and what the impact of these is on the learning process. Finally we will take a look at proficiency scales and how they can help us to improve our likelihood of success.
