Common Assessments: What You Need to Know (Webinar)

Using $360 million in Race to the Top money, two large groups of states are designing assessment systems for the common standards that have been adopted by 44 states and the District of Columbia. The new tests aim to move past the current one-shot, multiple-choice-only approach by requiring essays, projects, and other tasks designed to gauge deeper, more complex learning. The groups are also working on a variety of resources for teachers, such as model instructional units and formative assessments. This webinar will provide a briefing on the two groups’ distinctively different test designs and the range of instructional tools they’re planning.

Presenters:

•Joe Willhoft, executive director, SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium
•Laura M. Slover, senior vice president, Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers
