**PRE-REGISTRATION (on formal registration site) + FEE ARE REQUIRED**
Students and parents want schools that will give young people opportunities to think creatively, communicate effectively, and interact with the real world—gaining transferable skills which are essential for any path they choose in life. Employers and colleges want high-school graduates who organize their time, work on teams, conduct original research, and confront complex and novel problems by analyzing multiple possibilities and not giving up. These skills can be taught. They can be assessed. And classrooms become more equitable, dynamic, and powerful when these skills are at the heart of all teaching and learning.

In this session, participants will explore the Transferable Skills Assessment System, a suite of tools and resources being designed by Great Schools Partnership and Google’s Ed Tech Team to support schools in putting the transferable skills at the center of students’ learning. Participants will review tools for use in their schools and districts, and they will also have a chance to examine student work demonstrating the transferable skills, calibrating their scoring with others and selecting exemplars for use with their students and in the online tool. All participants will have an opportunity to give critical feedback about the system and its components. Administrators, teachers, students, and all others are all welcome at this session.
Participants will receive training in scoring student work that demonstrates transferable skills, samples of student work that can be used as anchor works for introducing and generating student discussion about the transferable skills, and tools and resources for teaching and assessing the transferable skills in a wide range of subject areas.
