TITLE OF PRESENTATION
Transforming Schools and Systems Using Assessment for Learning
I am a co-author (with Anne Davies and Beth Parrott Reynolds) of two books: Transforming Schools and Systems Using Assessment: A Practical Guide (2012), and Leading the Way to Assessment for Learning: A Practical Guide (2012). I have edited a volume of chapters written by high school teachers. A book, A Fresh Look at Grading and Reporting for High School is just in print now. I have several more works in progress in the areas of leadership and assessment.
As I work with schools, systems, and organizations, whether in person or online, I tailor my work to meet the learners’ needs. I am deeply committed to working towards a public education system that contributes to the success of all learners.
