Through-year assessment is enjoying a surge of attention. More than a dozen states are designing, piloting, or implementing versions of this assessment model to replace their current end-of-year summative tests for accountability. Through-year programs may provide benefits, but will also demand significant tradeoffs. In this webinar, Center President Scott Marion, and Senior Associates Carla Evans, Nathan Dadey, and Will Lorié will discuss 10 key considerations for states exploring through-year assessment, as outlined in the Center’s new paper.

During the conversation, you’ll learn about considerations and recommendations for through-year assessment in three key areas:

  • Conceptualization and design
  • Curriculum and instruction
  • Logistical and technical

The Brian Gong Colloquium

The Brian Gong Colloquium

This annual colloquium is named in honor of Brian Gong, the Center's Co-Founder and former Executive Director. Our aspiration for this internal event is to foster the intellectual curiosity, innovative thinking, and respectful discourse that Brian models. Our staff focuses on a topic that may be outside of their expertise but is likely to have a significant impact in our field of work. We spend one year gathering information on the topic, and we invite experts to join us for the colloquium to share information and engage in discussions.
