To be successful, every student must experience high-quality instruction in their classrooms, and teachers need the support to have access to these high-quality instructional materials. To achieve this goal, FAST works to ensure that states are able to provide teachers with high-quality professional learning that results in effective high-quality, standards-based instruction which meets the needs of each and every student.


2018-2019 Goals:

-Enhance expertise in formative assessment by engaging in collaborative conversations with state members, and learning from experts and researchers in formative assessment, including exemplar teacher practitioners.

-Create a complementary resource to An Integrated Approach to Defining a System-Level Theory of Action for Formative Assessment focused on an ecological theory of action for equity and formative assessment.

-Create case studies of formative assessment implementation from expert practitioners for members to use in state-led professional learning on formative assessment.

-Revise the Formative Assessment Rubrics, Reflection and Observation Tools to Support Professional Reflection on Practice (FARROP) to reflect the new dimensions of the revised FAST definition.
