From Session 1 of the 2021 Convening: Given the considerable variety of designs using the terms “through course,” “through year,” “distributed assessment,” or others, we start the convening with identifying the goals behind many through year proposals. In other words, we want to understand what problems/issues education leaders and assessment companies are trying to address. This session also involves providing grounding definitions and key characteristics of the various terms so that we can be working from a common language for the rest of the meeting.
