Scholarship in Practice Web Lecture Series


Every year, schools collect assessment information and use it to fuel data-driven decisions about curricula, administration and outreach. Even in ideal settings, getting high quality data is tough. So, what do we do when teaching and assessment shifts to all-online or hybrid environments where participation is less than comprehensive and collection is far from complete? Join our discussion, led by Dan Wright, Dunn Family Endowed Chair and Professor of Educational Assessment from UNLV's College of Education, where we'll explore how to analyze, communicate and act on this unique collection of assessment data.
