My desire to learn more about the ways teachers assess student learning came about as a result of my work with the new Language Learning Program of Studies. During the i nservice sessions the questions about "how to assess students" were the toughest to respond to. I realized that teachers needed more information about student assessment in order to understand the complete "language learning" picture. We created a professional development activity that could fill that role. The opportunity for me to chair a symposium centered around student assessment allowed me to combine my responsibilities as Program Services Consultant for Medicine Hat School District #76 and as a Language Learning Steering Committee member for the Southern Alberta Professional Development Consortium, with my Graduate studies at the University of Lethbridge. Through the cooperative efforts of M.H.S.D. #76, S.A.P.D.C., and the South Eastern Alberta Regional Council on School Administration we were able to offer a successful three day symposium that encouraged teachers and administrators to explore the congruency between learning, teaching, and assessment. This project documents the development and delivery of the symposium, Student Assessment: A Positive Beginning.
