​As part of Goal 1 within the State Board of Education’s Strategic Plan, the Assessment Department is providing a series of webinars to provide information to parents, teachers, and administrators in Illinois on various topics.   The topics range from interpreting the assessment results, increasing the knowledge of what students need to know and can do, and synthesizing assessment results to provide awareness of student learning in order to be effective in the classroom. A list of calendar events is provided, and webinars will be recorded for district staff to view at their own pace.​

Professional Development credits are available for those participating in live or recorded webinars. A link to the evaluation form will be emailed to those who complete the training.
