Presented by Francis “Skip” Fennell

Do you really know what your students are thinking when doing mathematics? How can you find out? What will you do next? This webinar addresses teachers’ challenges and questions in using formative assessment to guide planning and teaching, and monitor student progress in mathematics. Based on Skip Fennell’s new book, The Formative 5: Everyday Assessment Techniques for Every Math Classroom, it will present teacher and classroom-tested formative assessment techniques that are doable—every day—and that make a difference. The Formative 5 is a palette of the techniques that research shows provide the most effective assessment “game plan” for any mathematics classroom.


Hattie’s New #1 Effect Size: Collective Teacher Efficacy

Monday, March 6, 2017 - 3:30pm

Presented by Kristin Anderson

What if you could triple the speed of student learning? According to new findings by Professor John Hattie, a strong sense of Collective Teacher Efficacy (d=1.57) can yield over three years of student growth over one school year. Now ranked the most powerful influence on achievement in the Visible Learning research, Collective Teacher Efficacy is a belief that together teachers can positivity impact student learning. When efficacy is high, teachers show greater persistence and are more likely to try new teaching approaches. Join Visible Learningplus expert Kristin Anderson for an insider’s understanding.
