Re-engaging Students as Assessment Partners
Presented by: Dr. Jeanine Butler and district administrators 
Data regarding students re-engaging in school after Covid indicates high levels of anxiety as well as low grades. Starting with a clear definition of what we mean by student GROWTH in WA State, we share district and school level strategies that re-engage students as our assessment partners that can contribute to their confidence, competence, and sense of self-efficacy as learners.
