Quality Assessment Practices

Quality classroom assessment practices renew a focus on day-to-day, minute-by-minute learning that improves student outcomes. Through formative assessment practices, students know where they are in their learning, where they need to go and how to get there. Teachers have information they need to inform their next instructional steps, and families have more useful information to know how their student is doing in school.

What is a Micro-Credential Virtual Learning Community (VLC)?

Micro-credential Virtual Learning Communities (or VLCs) run for 6-8 weeks. Participants work towards submitting evidence and artifacts to earn a micro-credential digital badge. All VLCs are facilitated by active OEA members. Participants receive PDUs for completing the VLC and additional PDUs upon earning the micro-credential digital badge.
