To prepare our students for college and careers, it is imperative we provide our educators with research-based tools and strategies to create and deliver high-quality instruction and assessments.

MCCC staff and faculty are delighted Dr. Hess will be presenting her research and strategies during the August 2021 Teacher In-Service. Dr. Karin Hess, Ed.D is a former classroom teacher and school administrator with over 40 years of deep experience in curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Dr. Hess is recognized internationally as a leader in developing practical approaches for using cognitive rigor, depth of knowledge, and learning progressions as the foundation for curriculum design and assessments at all levels of assessment systems, from developing local assessment systems to state-level grade-level standards and test specifications for large-scale state assessments (Corwin, 2021).
