From the Program Chair
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our
annual conference which will be held at York University, May
27-30. The CERA program this year offers you a number of
events that promise to be both interesting and exciting. The
number of CERA sessions considerably increased this year
from last year, with 13 multi-paper sessions, 10 symposia, 5
round tables, and three panels. The researchers of our SIG
GISEM also prepared 8 symposia.
Our annual general meeting (AGM) is scheduled for May 28,
2006 at 11:30 a.m. (Room ACE 005) and CERA and GISEM
Wine and Cheese reception will be held on May 29, 2006 at a
NEW!! time, 4:30- 5:45 p.m. in the foyer of the TEL building.
Looking forward to seeing you in Toronto!!

Ontario Principals’ Council, in partnership with the Catholic
Principals’ Council of Ontario, Association des directions et
directions adjointes des ecoles franco-ontariennes, and the
Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat of the Ontario Ministry
of Education, has designed an innovative and comprehensive
plan for delivering support to school leaders as they build
professional learning communities in their schools and
across their districts.
The intent is to offer school leaders a pathway to mobilize
schools to improve the literacy and numeracy achievement
for all students and to document successful strategies that
can be shared and implemented across the province.

At the launch of the Leading Student Achievement project in
April 2005, Michael Fullan defined capacity building as
“any policy, strategy or activity that we do together that
increases the collective efficacy of a group to raise the bar
and close the gap of student achievement.” Fullan proposed
the tri-level solution, where the three levels—school, district
and province—work together to build capacity and improve
student learning. The framework of the LSA project is built
on the premise of lateral capacity building on these three
levels and the power of learning from a wider group of peers
across schools, across districts and across Ontario.

with the principals involved in the project to collect baseline
data on teacher instructional practice
Stage 2: Telephone interviews of principal participants to
determine the professional development opportunities
provided for participants in the project and observations at
project symposiums
Stage 3: Principal surveys to determine the nature and value
of the professional development experiences in which they
have been involved through the project and how they believe
it has influenced the leadership which they have provided for
literacy improvement in their schools
Stage 4: Second round of teacher surveys to determine the
extent to which the professional development provided to
principal participants and their subsequent work with
teachers actually resulted in any change in their teachers’
instructional practices

The University of Ottawa's Measurement, Evaluation, and
Assessment Research Unit (MEA) is organizing a bilingual
and international workshop entitled Toward a Shared
Conception of Large-scale Assessments of Reading and
Writing which will be held on June 15 and 16, 2006 at the
Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa. Approximately
thirty participants from across Canada, United States, and
France will look at various definitions of reading and writing
concepts within an assessment perspective. They will also
explore the possibilities and limits of large-scale assessments
in reading and writing in order to make them more appealing
and useful to all stakeholders. The workshop will conclude
with the inauguration, via onsite and teleconference
participation, of an international and bilingual research
cluster on large-scale assessments. The research cluster is
funded mainly by a SSHRC grant and is governed by MEA
in partnership with Victor Glickman, President of Edudata,
Canada and Michael A. Marshall, Executive Director of
Applied Research and Evaluation Services, University of
British Columbia. Officials from various Ministries of
Education and from provincial, national, and international
evaluation programs, education practitioners, researchers,
and all other individuals interested in the study of large-scale
assessments are invited to join the research cluster by
reaching Marielle Simon at [email protected]
The next regular issue of CERA News will be Aug 1.

L’unité recherche sur la Mesure et l’évaluation des
apprentissages (Méa) de l’Université d’Ottawa organise un
atelier bilingue et international intitulé <Vers une conception
partagée des enquêtes sur le rendement scolaire en lecture et
en écriture>, qui se tiendra le 15 et 16 juin 2006 à la Faculté
d’Éducation de l'Université d'Ottawa. Une trentaine de
participantes et participants de tous les coins du Canada, des
États-Unis et de la France examineront les diverses
définitions attribuées aux concepts de la lecture et de
l’écriture dans une perspective d’évaluation. Ils exploreront
également les défis et les limites de telles enquêtes dans le
but de trouver des moyens de les rendre davantage utiles et
attrayantes aux yeux de tous les partis concernés. Comme
activité clôture, il y aura inauguration, sur place et via
téléconférence, du réseau de recherche international et
bilingue sur les enquêtes à grande échelle sur le rendement
scolaire. Ce réseau est subventionné en grande partie par le
CRSH et est dirigé par MÉA en partenariat avec Victor
Glickman, président d'ÉDUDATA et Michael A. Marshall,
directeur de l'Applied Research and Evaluation Services de
l'Université de la Colombie Britannique. Enfin, nous
invitons les dirigeantes et dirigeants des ministères
d'éducation et des programmes d'évaluation, les praticiennes
et praticiens en éducation, les chercheurs ou toute autre
personne intéressée à l'étude des enquêtes à grande échelle
du rendement des élèves, à s'incrire au réseau de recherche
