For differentiation to happen, teachers need to gather and utilize information about their students. Information should relate to students’ readiness, interests, and learning profiles. Pre-, formative and summative assessments provide teachers with the data to plan meaningful learning experiences for all students. This webinar will focus on the role of assessments in differentiated instruction and strategies to develop and implement quality assessments.
