RAVSAK is revamping its newsletter for the new year, and the new format will include a video interview in each monthly installment. The first interview features Dr. Lee Shulman, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University and chair of the advisory board of the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE). The video discusses assessment in Jewish day schools and how it can be used to support how we tell the stories of our missions and visions. It supplements an article Dr. Shulman wrote on the subject in the most recent RAVSAK Hayidion. Both RAVSAK and CASJE are AVI CHAI grantees.

Lee Shulman on Assessment in Jewish Day Schools
“Jewish education is a field where so much more applied research and evaluation should be done–not in the spirit of ‘gotcha,’ but of a dancer looking in the mirror and learning what see when we look there.” With these words, Lee Shulman challenges day schools to construct evaluations that tell the kinds of stories that support and develop their missions and visions. This video supplements Shulman’s article in the issue and addresses issues specific to Jewish day schools.
