Upcoming Webinar on Using Data on Children's Progress to Inform Teaching

Published:  November 29, 2012

Anyone who has grappled with questions of what to do with data from child assessments  whether based on observations of children's development over months or simple snapshots of early literacy learning  will want to tune in to the next webinar coming from the PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group. On December 5, the work group is hosting its sixth webinar in a seven-part series on reducing achievement gaps through comprehensive reforms that reach up through the early grades of elementary school.

The webinar has a bang-up panel. As always, the New America Foundation, through Lisa Guernsey (@LisaGuernsey) or Laura Bornfreund (@LBornfreund), will live-tweet the event. You can register here or go to the PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group page for more information.
