Alignment by Design

Publication Date: 2004-06-23

Synopsis:

How can states "build alignment" between what they value for truly improving teaching and learning and what they identify for inclusion in large-scale assessment? Three New England states have worked together to build in this alignment throughout the development process. In this session key learnings and challenges were shared as well as offering concrete protocols for the development of grade-level expectations in mathematics and ELA and prioritization strategies used for development of test specifications to address these challenges.
