Professional Development

The CAP Foundation is committed to providing professional development opportunities to educators in its member districts. This is especially true for efforts aimed at increasing assessment literacy. CAP-sponsored trainings have helped participants understand the structure of high-quality assessments, determine the value of assessment results, and, most importantly, make connections between assessment data and classroom instruction.

For example, each of the CAP tests is the product of a rigorous professional development effort. Educators from member districts were trained to write, peer-review, and finalize both multiple-choice and constructed-response items. Following test administration, these same educators learned how to interpret item and test data and how to relate those data to classroom actions.

Notifications of future professional development opportunities for CAP member districts will be posted on this website.
