About this Learning Opportunity

Once you have administered the Level B Assessment, how do you analyze the results and use them to develop learning plans responsive to the learning needs of the individual student?

Dr. Dave Carter will offer this one-day session in response to requests from jurisdictions in our region for information about how to best utilize the student data gathered from Level B Assessments.

Please bring samples of student assessment data. Dr. Carter will facilitate examination and analysis of your data and support you in developing a learning plan.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
