Session 2: Advancing your skills in using COMPASS© assessment FOR learning
Have you used COMPASS© with students or attended Session 1? Participate in this session to explore in more detail the differences between assessing FOR learning versus assessment OF learning. We will identify why assessment FOR learning is critical for developing future colleagues who are lifelong learners capable of providing quality services. We will explore strategies to use COMPASS© to support this process. There will be a question and answer session at the end.
