Classroom Assessment Conference

The 4th NCME Special Virtual Conference
Rhetoric Meets Reality: Advancing K-12 Implementation
of Principles of Classroom Assessment

OCTOBER 21-22, 2021


The virtual conference will bring together K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, higher education faculty, and researchers to engage in dialogue, discussion, and learning to strengthen the practice and potential of classroom assessment and shape classroom assessment research needed to address current challenges faced by educators. Using a variety of session formats, the conference will blend the dynamic realities of the classroom with research and theory.

Despite significant attention to classroom assessment, persistent gaps remain between research and theory, on the one hand, and implementation in classrooms. An important factor in this divide is that classrooms are remarkably varied and complex. Indeed, the immense disruptions of the pandemic have exacerbated issues of learning gaps and inequities. Even under pre-pandemic circumstances, the applicability of research has been limited in most K-12 contexts. This conference is designed to address this disconnect as we gather to explore how the classroom context is connected to measurement theory and concepts and to have thoughtful discussions to inform classroom assessment research in ways that can support classroom assessment practices.
