AACTE has partnered with Measured Progress to provide a series of three webinars on a new requirement in the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accreditation standards: facilitating and measuring candidates' assessment literacy. This webinar series, "Developing the Assessment Literacy of Teacher Candidates" is free and available to the public.

This first webinar will explain the need for much-improved coverage of assessment literacy and present a framework for the domain. Participants will hear from Emerson Elliott, director of special projects at CAEP, who will outline the need and rationale for teacher assessment literacy and the expectations and implications for educator preparation programs. Additionally, participants will hear from Stuart Kahl, founding principal of Measured Progress, who will discuss the key findings from a report prepared for CAEP and introduce an assessment literacy framework. Feel free to download the full report in addition to the updated framework used.
