Five recommendations for standardized test designers

Fantastic Article!  “Can standardized tests…enhance education instead of just assessing it?”

What makes Inq-ITS unique is the ability to not only assess student inquiry skills, but also to receive real-time data so teachers can tailor their instruction to enhance student learning.  We are seeking teachers to pilot Inq-ITS in their classroom as we work to make assessments that enhance student learning.

Inq-ITS is headed to The Beaver State

Inq-ITS is headed over the Cascade Mountains to visit Bend, Oregon for the 2015 Oregon Science Teachers Association Conference.  We will have the opportunity to meet up with teachers at McMenamins Old St Francis School on Friday evening.  Saturday we will enjoy the beautiful Central Oregon Community College campus as we meet with teachers at our exhibit table.  Saturday evening we would like to invite teachers to gather for a casual no-host happy hour at Greg’s Grill in The Old Mill District at 4:30.  We hope to see you there.  (@OrSciTchr) #OSTA15
