Welcome to Center for Assessment
Center associates are supporting more than a dozen states responding to the Every Student Succeeds Act with inventive and technically defensible accountability designs.
Innovative Assessment Systems
The Center is leading the way in helping states and districts design and implement innovative assessment systems. The Performance Assessment of Competency Education (PACE) project in New Hampshire is a notable example of the Center’s work in this area.
Assessment comparability continues to be a challenging topic. The Center is working with states and other partners to address comparability issues with consortium as well as with other innovative assessment systems.
SUPPORTING STATES IN DESIGNING ASSESSMENT SYSTEMS
Center Senior Associate Joseph Martineau and Executive Director Scott Marion supported the Wyoming legislature and Department of Education by leading the Wyoming Assessment Task Force to frame a new coherent state assessment system that connects both interim and summative assessment to maximize the usefulness of the system.
The Center engages in deep partnerships with state and district education leaders to increase student learning through more meaningful educational assessment and accountability practices.
