ITERS-3 In-Depth Webinar

<Back to Trainings

The “ITERS-3 In-depth” webinar course is perfect for those organizations that have found themselves working from home as a result of COVID-19 and currently not able to go into classrooms to offer face-to-face technical assistance or conduct evaluations. Coaches, educational coordinators, technical assistance specialists, and QRIS evaluators can increase content knowledge of ITERS-3 requirements through participation in this new course. The ITERS-3 In-depth course will help ITERS-3 users to broaden their understanding of the scale requirements and prepare for successful reliability testing.  

The ITERS-3 In-depth webinar is offered in series of modules that provide information and interpretations of all ITERS-3 indicator requirements. Each module consists of two webinars. Each webinar is two hours and covers two items (*session 2 of Module 8 covers three items). These webinar courses are heavy in content information with rationales for ITERS-3 requirements. Each indicator will be broken down, explaining terms like “some, many, usually” and describing what it looks like in a classroom setting. There will be time set aside for answering questions. You can select what module you want to complete or you can take all modules. A certificate of attendance will be given for all completed modules.

The ITERS-3 In-depth Webinar Courses cost $275/participant for each module, with each module consisting of two webinars (each webinar is two hours).

Registration and full payment via check or purchase order need to be completed prior to the date of the course. Purchase orders must be replaced with checks a minimum of one week prior to the course date. A confirmation email will be sent when application and payment have been received.
