2013 Regional Conference in Baltimore 

October 16, 2013 • Hilton Baltimore• Baltimore

Using Formative Assessment for Student Learning

**Registration is closed for this event. There is no on-site registration. **
 

Engage with students during the learning process to improve student achievement.  

Research shows that formative assessment has the power to significantly improve student learning and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics strongly endorses the integration of formative assessment strategies into daily instruction.

Join us in Baltimore for this new preconference workshop, designed for educators of grades 3-8, that will give you the models and strategies you need to successfully implement effective formative assessment in order to guide future instruction and move student learning forward.

To learn more about the role of formative assessment in mathematics education download the NCTM position statement on formative assessment.
