RT @bmooreintheloop @npaklui @TeachersOnFire @KathyEHolmes @RStiggins @JanChappuis @Erik_Youngman @KMHundt @RosePillay1 @Vendram1n @Seinakashima7 Absolutely! And thank you for the kind feedback. There is a student discount for the Canadian Assessment for Learning conference in May that we're hosting in Delta this year. Perhaps some of your students would find it interesting? @CAFLNetwork cafln.ca

Why Canadian?

"To be complex does not mean to be fragmented. This is the paradox and the genius of our Canadian civilization"

– Adrienne Clarkson

Why Assessment for Learning?

"…assessment which is explicitly designed to promote learning is the single most powerful tool we have for both raising standards and empowering learning"

– Black and Wiliam, 1999

Why a Network?

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others."

– African Proverb

Started by Damian Cooper, Ken O'Connor, & Lorna Earl, the Canadian Assessment for Learning Network (CAfLN) is a member-led, non-profit organization that connects people across Canada who are interested in the use of assessment for learning and the development of related policies and research in education.

CAfLN emerged from conversations among Damian, Lorna, and Ken about the value and need for a pan-Canadian conversation about AfL - what it means, how it is implemented and what difference it is making in teaching and learning. As founding members, and first board of directors, they welcome input and support from all teachers, leaders and researchers who are interested in establishing and sustaining AfL in Canada.
