Webinar – Accountability And Student Engagement In Virtual Schools: What Is A Good Policy Framework?

This came through one of my social networks yesterday.  Note that this event is later today (like in a couple of hours time).

Dear Michael,

Thank you for registering for “Accountability and Student Engagement in Virtual Schools: What is a Good Policy Framework?”.

In this session we will explore the most controversial issues about virtual schools being discussed by policy makers around the country. Are the performance measures used by states to assess the quality of virtual programs accurate and appropriate? What policies can make sure that virtual students are engaged, and to prevent schools from receiving funding for students who are unengaged? Should virtual schools have enrollment criteria to screen out students who are not likely to succeed in a virtual environment?

Please send your questions, comments and feedback to: carissa.reedy@pearson.com

CIDER Session October 2018

Dear CIDER Member,

We invite you to our second session for the 2018-19 CIDER Sessions series on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. This free, online session will feature Dr. Dianne Conrad on assessment strategies for online learning.

Title: Assessment strategies for online learning

Although learners sometimes respond negatively to evaluation, assessments have provided educational institutions with important information about learning outcomes and the quality of education for many decades. But how accurate are these data and have they informed practice or been fully incorporated into the learning cycle? In their new book, Assessment Strategies for Online Learning, Conrad and Openo argue that the potential inherent in online learning environments to alter and improve assessment and evaluation has yet to be explored by educators and learners. They insist that online and distance learning environments afford educators new opportunities to embrace only the most effective face-to-face assessment methods and to realize the potential of engaged learning in the digital age.

In this session, the author will introduce her new book, Assessment Strategies for Online Learning, describing new forms of assessment and a number of best practices. To download a free copy of the book, visit AU Press at

When: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 – 11am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)
