This Guide provides a training framework for introducing educators and other education stakeholders to The Student Evaluation Standards, a comprehensive system approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for promoting sound student evaluation practices and policies. Designed for workshop facilitators, the Guide presents a series of lesson plans for workshop activities that promote understanding and implementation of the Standards by teachers, school and district administrators, school board members and school improvement teams, parents and community members, and teacher educators. The Guide covers workshop objectives, logistics, materials, design, activities, case analyses, discussion, review, and evaluation. The Facilitator's role and a Frequently Asked Questions feature make the Guide readily accessible to all trainers, and a complete set of reproducible materials for workshop attendees include sample letters, agendas, worksheets, and forms. Also included is a state-of-the-art list of resources that Facilitators will find useful for their entire workshop activities.
