About the Conference
One conference. Countless experiences.
The 2020 California Assessment Conference is a unique opportunity for classroom educators to explore connections between assessments and classroom instruction, and learn how to utilize assessment tools and resources to support teaching and learning, and hear from other local educational agencies.
This conference has been designed to create collaboration opportunities for educators who wish to discover how other educators, schools, and districts integrate all components of the state assessment system.
A variety of sessions and key topics, covered over two days, allow for a customized learning experience while minimizing time away from the classroom. Participants will learn, explore, find inspiration and return to the classroom ready to apply new skills and knowledge.
We look forward to seeing you in Online October 6–7, 2020
