PD Online: Differentiated Instruction: Using Assessment Effectively

Assessment is more than standardized or summative testing. It is much broader—a photo album to the isolated test's snapshot, an overall view of what goes on in the learning environment. Its purpose is to help students learn rather than to simply catalog their mistakes. Differentiating instruction requires teachers to respond to variations in students' readiness, interest, and learning profiles, information best gathered through appropriate use of assessment. This six-lesson online course identifies ways to use assessment to pinpoint students’ learning needs, reflects on some principles of differentiated instruction, and analyzes different ways to use continual assessment to inform instruction.
