Educators need ways to assess student learning that can also support students’ higher-order thinking skills, help improve teachers’ instructional practices, and give young people a chance to demonstrate college and career readiness. In this webinar, three district leaders will discuss how they supported the implementation of performance assessments, how they adapted their work in response to COVID-related school closures, and how they are thinking about meaningfully assessing student learning as schools reopen.

Panel members come from three school districts participating in the California Performance Assessment Collaborative: Los Angeles Unified, Oakland Unified, and Pasadena Unified. These districts are the focus of a forthcoming Learning Policy Institute report, "District Initiatives to Meaningfully Assess Student Learning: Lessons from the California Performance Assessment Collaborative."

The webinar will address:
○ How performance assessments can be used to meaningfully assess student learning.
○ What supports districts can put in place to help performance assessment initiatives to flourish.
○ Ways in which students and teachers can benefit from participating in a district performance assessment initiative.
○ Insights for educators interested in implementing performance assessment initiatives.
