Assessment for classroom learning and action: A framework for planning a school improvement program

This paper will present a preliminary framework for planning a proposed program that includes: (1) a testing and data utilization component for identifying student learning needs and measuring achievement, and (2) intervention components for teacher-level factors affecting students’, acquisition of knowledge and skills in the classroom. A core feature of the program is the use of assessment to inform improvement efforts at the level of classroom learning. Such a feature raises important questions on how assessments can be used to inform instruction and professional development decisions. These issues were identified by the framework and steps will be proposed on how to address them.The construction of this framework has been guided by current evidence on what contributes to student learning and effective training and teaching practices, as well as current views on the role of assessment in teaching and learning. It will serve to guide planners in assessing current capacities, identifying future directions, and planning cyclical monitoring for program enhancement.
