The training provided by Columbia University about assessing student learning was a great experience for all the English teachers in Pre-school and primary. Teachers felt encouraged about the way they had already developed and used their own assessment tools to inform their practice, but were also able to reflectively step back and look into the effective use of language as they devised tools for the future assessments.
Anneliese Kaptan, Preschool English Department Head

We can say that we understand the two basic concepts we know better: "Formative Assessment" and "Rubric preparation". Course visits on Thursday and Friday were positive. It was very useful to discuss the views according to a certain format after the 15-minute course syllabus. Tayfur Şansan, High School Mathematics Department Head

During the training session, we had the opportunity to revise what we are already implementing in the classrooms by means of formative assessment. We found it useful to talk about the nature and purpose of formative assessment and what considerations we should have when designing assessment tasks.
