Assessment for Learning Spring Conference: May 6-7, 2021


The 2021 Assessment for Learning Conference is a two-day virtual learning experience. Sessions will be ‘flipped’ so that we can spend our live time together in smaller group discussions of content, questions of practice, and design. The Conference will be a chance to build the collective knowledge and shared vision of the Assessment for Learning community.

The AFL2021 Call for Submissions is open and stipends are available! Propose a session today to share your work with a community of educators and policymakers who are committed to fundamentally #RethinkAssessment. How has assessment for learning helped us navigate the crises of the past year? And what must we learn from from this in order to build a more just and student-centered future of public education? Proposals are due March 29th.
