Acadience Learning has historically had partners who support building knowledge through training in Acadience Reading K-6 assessment. Please provide the training the registrant completed. If it's an approved equivalent training, Acadience Learning will share with the registrant a knowledge assessment to confirm content knowledge to meet this prerequisite.

If both workshops are completed three weeks before the Mentoring Workshop, and the registrant has both assessed students using the Acadience Reading K-6 assessment and used the data to plan, the registrant will be verified to attend.

The registrant may provide ALI asynchronous workshop in progress, or live training completed in the boxes requesting this information in preregistration (e.g., date: currently enrolled, location: ALI Asynchronous, trainer: trainer name). Once these are completed, registration will be finalized.

Acadience will verify your trainer was an active mentor when training in one or both workshops. Once confirmed, the Acadience Professional Learning Team will be in touch to share access to the culminating knowledge assessment(s) to demonstrate knowledge before verifying registration.

If more than three (3) attempts are made for either culminating assessment, Acadience will in be contact to determine eligibility.
