Developing and Using Proficiency Scales

Proficiency scales can be a powerful tool in the classroom. A clearly articulated, well described proficiency scale gives students the opportunity to visually understand what is needed to master the learning goal or standard. It also provides the teacher with a clear understanding of what they should see when measuring a student’s proficiency. We will discuss and practice how to develop a proficiency scale and how to effectively use it in the classroom. Samples of scales written to some Missouri Priority Standards will be shared.

Target Audience: Curriculum Directors, Administrators, Instructional Coaches, Assessment Directors, or Classroom Teachers
