    Dear educators,

    Thank you for your relentless commitment to your students as the unimaginable and traumatic events in the world have unfolded.

    Educators, in the midst of their own stress, grief, and varying levels of trauma, persisted and pursued new ways of reaching and connecting with students.
    Solution Tree Assessment Center expert Nicole Dimich
    I’m inspired and humbled to watch the action schools are taking to meet the needs of our students and families. This type of agility demonstrates the professionalism and the deep care that educators have for ensuring that students learn and grow. Many lessons have been learned about what is important, especially now.

    Determining what is most essential for students to learn, and finding the most meaningful and effective ways to assess it, has become a compelling need. Assessment was important before, and it is even more important now, as it sits at the center of helping students, their teachers, their families, and the system know what has been learned, what needs more support, and what practices are working or not.

    I would love to have you join me at one of the following workshops to explore and learn more together about the role assessment plays in inspiring and ensuring learning. Assessment can be an engagement and high-leverage strategy for deepening learning and building confidence in our students—join me, won’t you?
