Workshops: understanding the role of assessment in teaching inquiry Institute for Inquiry  
Based on the work of noted British educator Wynne Harlen, these workshops introduce the Formative Assessment Cycle, a process by which teachers gather evidence of students’ thinking and use this evidence to decide next steps for teaching. These workshops are designed to be used sequentially, building on one another so participants develop a comprehensive view of formative assessment in the classroom.
