In this session, we will explore how to make a Culture of Universal Achievement a reality at your school. Participants will learn how assessments “for” learning can help diagnose the individual strengths and weaknesses of their students in order to focus instruction on crucial needs.  We will then discuss how to use this information to actively involve students in making decisions about their learning.  Methods for guiding students in setting individual and class goals that help them take ownership of their progress and achievement will be explicitly explored.  Witness the class and student goal setting process that has proven to be an effective means for increasing student achievement at NEU schools across the nation!
