Developing a Common Understanding of Assessment - Two Models for Facilitation
Collection: Learning Materials
This document presents two models for developing a common understanding of assessment among Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) agencies. The models are based on the experiences of Project READ Literacy Network and Simcoe County Literacy Network in Ontario in facilitating a process for common assessment with their member agencies.
Each model is presented in a “how to” style, with suggestions for meeting agendas, group activities, and discussion topics.
The authors do not provide a definitive prescription for what common assessment should look like. Rather, the focus is on helping partners work together to forge their own understanding of assessment, and reach agreement about how they will deliver literacy training in their community.
