SWCOLT and CCFLT 2015 Regional Conference



Colorado Educator Effectiveness Law and its impact on learning strategies and assessment.

Abstract


The Colorado Educator Effectiveness law is having a major impact on our teaching, how we assess students and teacher evaluations. We need to be able to provide evidence of student growth, understand measures of student learning and design assessments aligned to standards. What resources does CDE have? How can we use these resources to design learning and create effective assessments?

Participants will:
  1. better understand the Colorado Educator Effectiveness Law and its impact on teaching, designing learning and assessments;
  2. examine the CDE Assessment Resource Bank and the CDE Sample curriculum units in order to understand how these resources are samples to help teachers create standards-based thematic units and performance assessments that impact student learning and educator effectiveness
