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.
If you would like to serve as an advisor for this meeting or help inform the community's direction, please contact Amy Busey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
