Conference session: Shift your thinking about PYP assessment
Date and time: Check the conference schedule here.
Description: Assessment that is integral to the learning and teaching process, and is effective and meaningful, provides the learning community with information needed to understand where students are in their learning. Research on PYP assessment recommends strengthening teacher assessment literacy and integrating assessment with teaching to improve student learning. Effective assessment shares key characteristics. Enjoy an interactive session to share assessment experiences and points of view. Take away assessment ideas to help shift your thinking and support learning together through assessment.

We look forward to seeing you in Toronto.
