     Achieve Webinar:
    How do we collect data system-wide to ensure we are moving towards equity?

     July 18, 2019
     Achieve hosted a webinar this month for the 50 State Science Network about how we can use data (beyond state assessments) to move towards a more equitable science classroom. University of Washington's Dr. Deb Morrison shared her work on Practical Measures, which provide a way to measure both activity in the classroom and how students experience that activity. This allows teachers and leaders to gather data about some of the more difficult-to-measure indicators laid out in NASEM's recent report, Monitoring Educational Equity.

     CSSS/NSELA Joint Webinar:
    Science Professional Learning Standards
