An Evaluation and Assessment Seminar

Classroom Assessment: Developmental Approaches
Applying the Rasch Measurement Model

January 21, 2000, 8 am - 4 pm
101 S.W. Main, 5th floor, Portland, Oregon

Join us as we examine how a math or science curriculum may be organized as a developmental sequence of concepts constructed by the learner. Discover how the Rasch measurement model can be powerfully coordinated with the curriculum to produce classroom assessment that matches the teacher's questions to any developmental sequence of concepts. $25.00 per person. Contact: Dr. Thomas Tinkler

Workshop: SAGE will host a follow-up workshop at George Fox University entitled In Defense of Development: Making the Case for Student Development in Teaching and Assessment at their Seventh Annual Developing Minds Conference, Saturday, Jan. 22. This workshop trains teachers how to assess a student's conceptual development and how to identify internal preconceptions and/or misconceptions in science and math so that they can improve student understanding.
