This workshop will detail the journey of one math teacher transforming his math assessment methods to allow all his students to feel like they belong. Experiences and resources using standards based assessment (SBA) with students in alternate, regular and Advanced Placement math courses will be shared. Tips on how to report out SBA using MyEducation BC will also be presented. Time in the workshop will be given to provide tools to help those who are transitioning to SBA to meet the new BC K-12 Student Reporting Framework requirements for Grade 8 and 9 courses for September 2023. Come with an open mind and leave with tangible resources/ideas on how SBA is a viable an assessment method for all types of students.
