Dr. Karin Hess, Senior Associate with the National Center for Assessment (NCIEA) since 2002, brings to our work over 30 years of deep experience in curriculum, instruction, and assessment. She has assisted more than a dozen states in major development of grade level expectations, revisions to state content standards, and in creating detailed assessment specifications aligned to content standards that are both educationally and technically sound. Dr. Hess is recognized nationally for her research and work with learning progressions and cognitive rigor. Dr. Hess is one of the principal architects of the Smarter Balanced Assessment design.
Most recently, her work has focused on development and alignment of educationally sound and accessible locally-based assessments; the use of content-based learning progressions for progress monitoring; and assessment practices that support improved achievement. In addition to 20+ years as an elementary and middle school classroom teacher and K-12 school administrator, Dr. Hess has worked at the NJ Department of Education as state director for gifted education, a program evaluator for the Vermont Mathematics Project; as a content specialist for development of the Vermont state science assessment; and as the developer/editor of Science Exemplars performance assessments. She has authored and co-authored numerous books, book chapters, and articles on educational assessment issues.

Session Description
Day 1: Guided practice for balancing cognitive rigor with strategic scaffolding in instruction and assessment
Part 1: Rigor for All Students Dispelling common misconceptions about rigor/Depth of Knowledge applied to instruction and assessment
The concept of "cognitive rigor" will be defined and some common misconceptions about Depth of Knowledge (DoK) will be dispelled. Karin will give an overview of how she developed the Cognitive Rigor Matrix (CRM) and how to use the matrix to analyze content-specific examples (grades K-12). Participants will explore how the CRM illustrates teachers and students' role shifts with deeper questioning, complex tasks, and strategic scaffolding.
Part 2: Developing High-Quality Assessments Applying assessment research and classroom-tested tools and strategies to develop or refine your high-quality assessments
Using an interactive format, Karin will guide participants as they examine:
...
Karin will connect college and career-readiness research with assignment design, student-centered learning, and classroom-tested tools and strategies for developing and implementing high-quality assessments used to document progress across the school year across content areas.
_____________________________________________________________________________
Throughout the two days, Karin will provide guided practice in using several of her PLC tools for designing and validating formative and performance assessments, analyzing student work, and coaching teachers.
