Make Assessment Work for All Students

 

Thursday, May 5, Make Assessment Work for All Students:

Multiple Measures Matter

 

The passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act has ushered in a new era for K-12 assessments. What do parents, educators and students think about the role and value of assessment in this context? What are the opportunities to rebalance our assessment systems to better support students, and what are the obstacles to doing so? To better understand the views of key stakeholders in this context of change, Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) and Gallup have conducted the first-ever study on perceptions of educational assessments that incorporates the views of teachers, superintendents, principals, parents and students.

 

Speakers:

Brandon Busteed, Executive Director, Gallup Education and Workforce Development

Matt Chapman, CEO, NWEA

Kelly Goodrich, Vice President of Policy and Advocacy, NWEA

 

Following the presentation of findings, Kelly Goodrich will moderate a panel discussion on the future of assessments.

A light breakfast will be served.

 

To be held from 9 to 11 at EDT at The Gallup Building, 901 F Street, NW, Washington, D.C.

Please note: The building entrance is located on 9th Street NW.
