Assessment Literacy PD Opportunity

Assessment Literacy Training for Teachers

The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) will engage a cohort of Wyoming educators in discussions about assessment using resources created through a partnership with the National Center for Improvement of Education Assessment.

Educators will complete prerecorded modules prior to meeting virtually with WDE staff to engage in assessment discussions. Current and preservice teachers are welcome to participate at no cost.

To register, please complete the Assessment Literacy PD Registration form. Participants will receive a confirmation email with meeting details and instructions for accessing modules.
