Data, Assessment, and Research Symposium - October 1, 2019
We are excited to have Dr. JP Beaudoin presenting a breakout session at our Data, Assessment, and Research Symposium on October 1 at the Clyde Muse Center in Pearl, MS. The session will focus on data quality from the perspective of creating information about student mastery of the MS-CCRS. This information is derived from using a range of technology enhanced items (TEIs) focused on reducing "false positive" data, while concurrently measuring more complex cognitive processes. The presentation will be tailored to the needs of school leaders and key educational decision-makers at the district/school level.
This is a FREE symposium for PREPS member districts. Non-member districts may sign up for a nominal fee. For more information visit our website at www.mspreps.org under OCT SYMPOSIUM.
