Summary

Much has been said of state tests in recent public discourse. Whether for or against them, one issue remains central: how can we best ensure that all students are making meaningful progress toward learning outcomes that matter? Recently, with the enactment of the Every Student Succeeds Act and the potential for states to apply for an “Innovative Assessment and Accountability Demonstration Authority,” many states are rethinking this core question. Join a teacher, a state education commissioner, and the director of a national innovation network to explore what matters in student assessment and how some states are fostering innovative, bottom-up approaches to assessment system redesign.
