  • 6:15-7:30 p.m. Dr. Mike Ford: New Directions in Assessment: Critical Considerations in Humanizing Our Practices

Presented by Dr. Michael Ford, Professor Emeritus, UW-Oshkosh, Chair of the Dept. of Literacy and Language and a Professor in the teacher education program for 29 years

Topic summary: It's time to take another look at cool books and hot topics with Dr. Ford. Assessment remains a hot topic and now experts are talking about humanizing assessment. So how could that happen? We will look at professional standards that should influence our beliefs about assessment. In addition, we will look at what research now reveals about recent implementations of assessment practices. As a result, let's explore, together, practical ways to humanize our assessment practices. This presentation should help us find our voices as we grow stronger in our beliefs and smarter in our understandings about assessment practices. We’ll also hear about some great books to read with students and might even break out in a song or two just for fun!  :)
