If you've never experienced a protocol for looking at student
work you may wonder what one really looks and sounds like. In this "virtual
protocol," we present a Collaborative
Assessment Conference (CAC) that took place a few years ago at
an NSRF® Coaches Seminar. Included here you will find the student work,
steps of the CAC,
and excerpts from the dialogue through each step of the process.
renda, an elementary school teacher, presented two pieces of writing from the same student.
Now proceed though each step of the process and experience the conversation. For each step we've included an agenda of what happens and a brief description about what the step is intended to do and why it's important.
