What are the Assessment Priorities for MCPS?
We believe in developing and creating a balanced assessment system in order to use different forms of formative and summative assessments. Thus, the MCPS Building Principal PLC has identified key components necessary to build a strong, effective balanced assessment system that informs our teaching and learning improvement practices.
- Establish a clear purpose.
- Create clear targets.
- Build sound design with key components at school and district level.
- Practice effective communication of instruction, learning, results, and programs.
- Involve students in their own reflection and feedback
