Webinar: Evaluating Next Generation Assessments

Thursday, March 17, Evaluating Next Generation Assessments: Policy Implications for States  -- a NASBE webinar from 2 to 3 PM EST



This month, the Thomas B. Fordham Institute released its much-anticipated study, Evaluating the Content and Quality of Next Generation Assessments, which examines the content, quality, and rigor of four state assessments: ACT Aspire, PARCC, Smarter Balanced, and MCAS, Massachusetts's state exam.


Overall, the study found that the PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments have the strongest matches to CCSSO's criteria for high-quality evaluations. ACT Aspire and the MCAS exams fare well in both their quality and depth of knowledge but fall short on assessing content reflected in Common Core State Standards.


Join NASBE as we talk with the Fordham Institute's Mike Petrilli about the findings and their implications for state policymaking.
