The Georgia Department of Education’s Assessment and Accountability Division has launched an online professional learning opportunity dealing with Formative Instructional Practices (FIP).
The course content is based on the work of Rick Stiggins, Jan Chappius, and others.
Research has shown consistently that effective use of formative assessment leads to significant increases in student achievement, even with learners who have previously struggled.
Georgia FIP consists of seven online modules.
The primary target audience for five of the modules is teachers, while the other two are designed for administrators, coaches and teacher-leaders.
Georgia FIP has four major content components: (1) Establishing Clear Learning Targets, (2) Collecting and Documenting Evidence of Learning, (3) Providing Effective Feedback, and (4) Developing Student Ownership of Learning.
GADOE’s Assessment and Accountability Division provided additional information, support, and guidance through informational webinars, which were held on Monday, June 24th and Wednesday, June 26th. You may view a recording of the webinar by clicking on the link below:
