High-quality assessment is the cornerstone of teaching and learning; educators use assessment data to guide instruction and make key decisions.
Assessment literacy expands educators' capacity to review, select, and design assessments, promoting the use of high-quality data to inform decisions.
What is Assessment Literacy?
Improving assessment literacy skills empowers educators to review, revise, and design high-quality assessments by focusing on the key foundations—validity, reliability, and bias.
When educators develop a trained eye to recognize the foundations of high-quality assessment, they can determine which measures generate data to make valid, reliable inferences—improving professional practice and accelerate learning for all students.
