Professional Learning Initiative 2024-25

The Michigan Department of Education, together with project partners, is excited to announce the 17th year of a professional learning initiative, Formative Assessment for Michigan Educators (FAME).

The primary purpose of this initiative is to establish a foundation and process that will promote teacher collaboration and planning for effective formative assessment practices in the classroom. The model relies on building a cadre of Michigan educators to serve as coaches for site-based learning teams of teachers and administrators in Michigan schools.

Through face-to-face training and via distance technologies (e.g., social networking, webinars, and a resource website), coaches are trained to provide job-embedded support for learning teams. Coaches work with learning teams to create a collaborative learning environment in which team members learn about, implement, and reflect on the formative assessment process in their classrooms. To be most effective, learning teams will continue their work over a three-year period, facilitated by a FAME Coach.
