We will take a short test that will then become the body of the presentation. The answers to the test items are actually the topics of the presentation. Attendess will be encouraged to share their understanding of the uses of testing in their respective districts and we will endeavor to have them become more involved with the testing continuum that takes place during the school life of a student. We will also explore tactics to improve test taking skills. I will have handouts for each attendee. Board Members will need this type of information as we move further into the "Data Driven Decision Making" mode of school improvement.
