We believe that learning is more than just memorizing or performing well on tests. Join us to explore why it’s necessary to shift our mindsets around testing.
At Carnegie Learning, we believe that learning is more than just memorizing or even performing well on tests – it involves deep conceptual understanding that supports ongoing growth and continued development. Join us to explore why it’s necessary to shift our mindsets around testing, reflect on where you are in this journey, and discuss concrete strategies that can help you drive this important shift in your district, school, or classroom.
During this webinar, you will:
- Define what it means to shift our mindsets around testing and reflect on where you are in this journey
- Identify important focus areas in both English Language Arts and Mathematics
- Discuss concrete strategies to support mindset shifts around testing
