In this webinar, the presenter will explain the importance of having measurable learning outcomes and guide participants through the practice of assessing and improving outcomes to ensure they are both specific and measurable indicators of learning.

    Dynamic vs. Static Assessment: A Growth Mindset Perspective

    Assessment should inform teaching. It should be continuous, pick up data on mathematical growth and development, and provide information about the “zone of proximal development” (Vygotsky 1978). To do so, it needs “to foresee where and how one can anticipate that which is just coming into view in the distance” (Streefland 1985, 285). It needs to capture genuine mathematizing—children’s strategies, their ways of modeling realistic problems, and their understanding of key mathematical ideas. Bottom line, it needs to capture where the child is on the landscape of learning—where she has been, what her struggles are, and where she is going: it must be dynamic. This session will examine ways to assess development dynamically to inform teaching and to document the learning journey.
