The Changing Context of Assessment:

The Changing Context of Assessment The Common Core Standards: “fewer, clearer, higher” Race to the Top: new forms of accountability, focus on student learning results Race to the Top: increased emphasis on data collection and analysis

Catching Up or Leading the Way:

Purpose of Responsible Assessment*:

Purpose of Responsible Assessment* Provides feedback to students in order to improve their learning . Informs the teaching/learning dynamic to better meet students’ needs . Generates information about the extent to which students acquire, apply, and create knowledge. *Tri-State Consortium, 2011

Forms of Responsible Assessment*:

Forms of Responsible Assessment* Multiple forms of assessment provide a broader and more accurate picture of what students know and can do . Standardized tests make comparisons and identify patterns within and across groups of students. More authentic, performance-based assessments provide richer detail about what individual students know and can do and how they progress over time. *Tri-State Consortium, 2011

Misuse of Assessment*:

Misuse of Assessment* Just as it is inappropriate to make judgments about students based on any single measure, it is also inappropriate to make judgments about teachers, schools or school districts based on any single measure. *Tri-State Consortium, 2011
