Assessment Learning Network

The Assessment Learning Network (ALN) is a professional learning community consisting of members from Michigan’s professional education organizations. The goal of the ALN is to increase the assessment literacy of all of Michigan’s professional educators.

The ALN is a unique concept that:

  • Is supported by the Michigan Assessment Consortium (MAC) and the Michigan Department of Education
  • Engages the leadership from Michigan’s professional education associations
  • Offers regular engagements where diverse education leaders learn together about the power of assessment to support the development of our students, their educators and our state

We believe that through engagement and shared perspectives, this learning community will invest in Michigan’s children and the education profession by using assessment to culti­vate the capable learners we will be proud of.
