Identifying Levels of Mastery: Proficiency Scales Workshop



Identifying Levels of Mastery: Proficiency Scales Workshop

Punta Gorda, Florida | December 13, 2018

Focus instructional activities on what matters most. Clear, specific learning goals lay the foundation for effective teaching. Learn what effective teachers do to establish and communicate learning goals, track student progress, and celebrate success.

Target and measure improved student learning. High-quality learning goals set an appropriate level of difficulty, drive the selection of targeted instructional activities, and align with assessment tools that allow teachers and students to measure progress. First you’ll explore the research on goal setting and two different kinds of learning goals. Then you’ll learn how to design goals and align them with proficiency scales to measure student performance. Finally, track student results—and celebrate!

  • Understand the difference between declarative and procedural knowledge
  • Translate broad standards into specific learning goals
