Most current assessment systems rely on generating data in order to identify, sort and label students, as well as educators. But, this approach is at odds with what has always been the true purpose of effective assessment, which should instead be to build hope, efficacy and achievement for both learners and educators. It’s time for a radically different approach.

Before transformative change can occur in a school system, the culture must be ready for it. Fostering a culture where new ideas are welcomed, risks are taken and failures are learned from will enable innovation to flourish and lay the groundwork for the success of any initiative.

At the Arcadia USD in California, administrators have created a thriving culture of innovation for all staff and students. Initiating a 1:1 program, piloting a Personalized Learning Lab school, implementing a new approach to PD and creating a digital communication internship are just a few examples.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires all Title I schools to use “evidence-based” educational activities.

Attend this web seminar to participate in a discussion about the practical implications of ESSA for administrators, and how to analyze and apply education research to help you make more effective strategic decisions for your district.
