How to Design and Select Quality Assessments

Teachers as well as building and district leaders who are implementing the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System 2.0 will benefit from training and support related to selecting, developing and using assessments. The Ohio Department of Education is offering this support through activities aimed at helping participants enhance their “assessment literacy” skills.
