UVA Holds ‘Conference on Educational Measurements’

Posted: Updated:

Teachers from across Virginia are gathering Thursday and Friday to develop tools that better measure how students learn. 

The University of Virginia Conference on Educational Measurements will use the information to improve teachers' skills. 

Bridget Hamre, a UVA research associate professor, said many policy initiatives call for ways to gauge teacher-student learning. 

"We want to make sure that these measures really reflect what we know about how kids learn the factors that support learning," Hamre said. 

UVA developed the prevailing measurement system now used nationwide. UVA's Curry School of Education is hosting the conference from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
