RE: TIME-SENSITIVE: Call for Applications for Assessment Literacy Task Force
This memorandum serves as a call for applications to the Assessment Literacy task force. We are seeking UEA members with:
· Experience in assessment literacy including competency designing assessment, analyzing baseline student data, developing growth targets for students, utilizing data to monitor student progress; and creating valid, reliable, developmentally appropriate student assessments
· Knowledge of current assessment literacy curriculum and research
· Basic understanding of Student Learning Objectives (SLO)and the correlation of assessments to the creation of SLOs.
We are hard at work throughout the organization gathering input and data necessary for the task force to do its work. This is a unique opportunity for UEA and our locals to take the lead on supporting our member educators through the creation of an assessment literacy curriculum related to the creation of Student Learning Objectives. Thank you!
