For far too long, assessment is what we have done to students, not with them. Perhaps we could take a page from tactical teams and first responders. Navy SEALs practice ‘Decentralized Command’ – that every team member must understand not just what to do, but why they are doing it. Firefighters around the world are familiar with ‘Span of Control’, that in a complex and changing environment, a single leader cannot effectively manage more than about 7 people at one time. If these principles are true for emergency situations, they likely spill over into learning environments. In fact, research suggests the extent to which students perceive assessment to be authentic, formative for teachers, and not reliant on external factors, the more they will engage in it. Other research suggests that student self-reporting is one of the powerful forces in education. Considering the potential power of student's voice, this interactive presentation will focus on practical ways that we can invite students into the assessment realm as co-pilots rather than disinterested passengers. Join ASCD author, administrator, and teacher, Myron Dueck for a session featuring his new book, ‘Giving Students a Say – Smarter Assessment Practices to Empower and Engage.’ Key topics will include:
·      Sharing and co-creating learning targets based on standards.
·      Helping students understand and use performance assessments (rubrics).
·      Considering the right scale: proficiency levels vs 100 categories (percentage)
· Student self-reporting – on academics, behaviors & personal insights
