The Northeast Rural Districts Research Alliance hosts this Bridge Webinar to discuss the challenges of assessing 21st Century Skills in rural schools in the context of the Common Core State Standards. Participants will engage with current research and deepen their knowledge of principles of teaching and assessing 21st Century cognitive, interpersonal, and intrapersonal skills.
Featured presenter Dr. Joan Herman, Co-Director Emeritus of the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing at U.C.L.A., will review the development and assessment of 21st Century Skills and how they connect to the Common Core. Her presentation will be followed by perspectives from research alliance members on teaching, learning, and assessing these skills in small rural schools and districts in the Northeast.
