Superintendent of Education,
Yellowknife Education District No. 1
I have been a member of the NWTSA for nine years and CASS for eight. Previously I was a Principal and teacher in K-12 schools.
Assessment is an important part of my work because….
Our District and the NWT have a strong focus on Assessment for Learning. Anne Davies and Sandra Herbst have been up to Yellowknife to work with our Administration and staff on Assessment. It is important to ensure our staff receive the professional development they need to impact positive student learning.
The current assessment focus of my work is:
We have just recently implemented a new report card which contains the objectives students are taught and their proficiency in meeting those objectives. We do collect data on student achievement from classroom assessments and review it to support programming decisions and student learning.
