Bridging Assessment and Instruction.

CATT has a longstanding tradition of offering programming that is particularly relevant to contemporary educational topics. While CATT is technically a new office, it is more so a new iteration of previously existing campus resources. As such, the idea for this annual conference has been drawn from annual conferences hosted by the Office of Educational Effectiveness and the Center for Educational Innovation in the past.

Thank you for attending!

On Tuesday January 18, CATT hosted the first of a new annual series seeking to address critical topics in education. Join us as we seek to bridge conversations in assessment and instruction to the benefit of professionals in both areas. Our day-long virtual conference featured four presenters in addition to the expert voice of Marilee Bresciani Ludvik as our keynote speaker.
