The Road Ahead for State Assessments: What the Assessment Consortia Built, Why It Matters, and Emerging Options
This publication, produced by the Educational Testing Service, is the final edition in Coming Together to Raise Achievement, a series that documented the work of the six federally funded assessment consortia.
The final edition explores the changing landscape of state assessments and presents reflections from education leaders nationwide on:
- The impact of Race to the Top on the U.S. education system, including the program’s successes and failures
- The inherent assessment opportunities and challenges under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
- The consortia’s membership and assessment designs for 2015-2016
Andrew Latham, Director of Standards, Assessment, and Accountability Services at WestEd, contributed a key article on ESSA and the new era of local control for assessment and accountability.
