Event Materials

What does a high-quality assessment system look like? States will have to make important decisions about assessments in the coming years, as the products developed by the two state consortia come on line. To help guide those decisions, nearly two dozen of the nation’s leading assessment experts developed a set of criteria. These criteria address what the assessments should measure, how they should measure these abilities, and how the assessments should be used.

In this Alliance for Excellent Education webinar, panelists will explore the statement of criteria and its implications for states. Kristin Amundsen, Linda Darling-Hammond, and James Pellegrino will describe the criteria and what they mean, and Bob Wise will moderate the discussion. Panelists will also address questions submitted by webinar viewers from across the country.
