Symposium: Understanding the Nation's Report Card


Thursday, November 5, Understanding the Nation's Report Card:  A Symposium on the 2015 Results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
The Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) and the Center on Education Policy (CEP) at the George Washington University invite you to an analysis and discussion of the 2015 NAEP results.
Join us for an informative and nonpartisan dialogue about the latest NAEP results.  Many states are implementing the Common Core State Standards and there has been widespread change in American education even in places that have not adopted the Common Core, which will lead to intensive scrutiny and debate. GSEHD and CEP will provide a context for the NAEP findings, considering what the results mean and do not mean and the impact of multiple factors on the results.
Peggy Carr, Associate Commissioner for Assessment for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) at the U.S. Department of Education, will provide a summary of the NAEP findings.   Michael J. Feuer, Dean of GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development and President of the National Academy of Education, and James W. Pellegrino, Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Vice President of the National Academy of Education, will lead a discussion the 2015 results in the context of historical trend data and the use of NAEP as a measurement tool in the era of the Common Core. Additional experts will join the discussion and share insights from the state and local perspective.
This event will be valuable for policymakers, researchers, members of the academic community, the media and local practitioners seeking an understanding of the NAEP findings and a context for the factors that impact NAEP and other test results.
To be held from 2:00-4:30 p.m. at the Marvin Center 403 at The George Washington University.
