Session Detail

TFAR Training

TFAR Training for leaders wanting to create and share items.

Important Session Information:

The Texas Formative Assessment Resource (TFAR) is an online platform that enables educators to create, administer, analyze, and share formative assessments. Data from formative assessments is used to inform teaching decisions and improve instructional supports. TFAR is an optional tool that is available at no cost to districts and open-enrollment charter schools and is not tied to accountability.

TFAR is meant to supplement and support existing district resources and formative assessment practices. Quizzes built using this tool should be combined with a broader set of classroom formative practices that are part of a coherent instructional framework.

At this training ESC 17 will be partnering with TEA to train teachers and instructional leaders on
- Create Assessment Items that Align with the new STAAR redesign
- Sharing Created Assessment Items and Full tests with teachers and districts
- Pulling Data from TFAR into Eduphoria and DMAC
- Looking at TFAR data in the Central Reporting System

In the afternoon, our ESC 17 content specialists and TEA representatives will help attendees digitize their assessment items (Exit Tickets, Bell Ringers, Unit Assessments, and Benchmarks) into the TFAR system.  

As a result of their learning, participants will be able to go create STAAR aligned assessment questions ready to use the very next day.



Registration ends at 12:00 AM on Thursday, October 20, 2022
