Everybody loves data these days. More and more, teachers and schools are mandated to use data to drive instruction, to evaluate teachers, and to justify programs. However, this is only valid if the data we are using is authentic and useful.

Participants in this Oregon Writing Project (OWP) course will use reading sample data to: 1) create classroom mini-lessons that address student needs as revealed by work-sample data, and 2) build a personal plan for using authentic assessment to improve student learning.

  • The Oregon Writing Project (OWP), is a collaboration program between Lewis & Clark and metropolitan or rural area schools and districts, and offers programs designed to improve the writing of Oregon’s K-12 students and teachers.
