Welcome To CADRE
Index of Conferences and Publications
For your convenience, we have compiled an index of conferences and publications to aid in disseminating your findings, models, resources, and tools to various education, research, and policy audiences. The index includes information about organizations' activities, members, conferences, and publications, with instructions for presentation and manuscript proposals. Please let us know if having this information in one place works for you!
Building the DR-K12 Student Assessment Community
In late summer or early fall (depending on PI preferences) 2009, we will convene a meeting for those of you who have DR-K12 grants that focus on assessment. This forum will provide an opportunity for assessment leaders to identify and explore important student assessment challenges from multiple perspectives and disciplines. Two major goals will be (1) to build connections across projects and stronger, clearer articulation among research, development, and assessment; and (2) to build a DR-K12 assessment community. The meeting will be the first of many over a five-year period, allowing PIs to move from sharing individual assessment projects to tackling the "bigger issues" of the collective assessment portfolio of DR-K12.
