Twitter Chat RECAP: The Power and Purpose of Assessment

FP_TwitterChat_Webinar_Aug2017_e

On Thursday, August 31, 2017, Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell hosted a Twitter Chat about The Power and Purpose of Assessment. People from all over the country logged in to share their thoughts about this important topic, just in time for the new school year! Followers engaged in a discussion about many different angles of assessment from how assessment informs moment-to-moment teaching decisions, to the importance of the continuous use of reading records in everyday instruction.

Some favorite tweets included: 

Assessment is not teaching. It is gathering information for teaching. 

The decisions you make based on the data you collect will be the heartbeat of your responsive teaching.

Without effective assessment, instruction will be mere guesswork.

Save the date for our next Twitter Chat on September 28 at 8:00 p.m. EST when we will discuss Building Your Classroom Community.
