Making a Positive Future for Assessment

With the rise of the testing resistance and reform movement and passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act, the opportunity exists to thoroughly overhaul assessment to become mostly beneficial to students and educators. FairTest has offered its own set of proposals (see www.fairtest.org), which are consistent with  CES's principle of "demonstration of mastery." This workshop will examine the current reform movement; discuss ESSA limits and possibilities; share what people are doing in their own schools and how that can inform future possibilities; share what people want to do; and propose the future of assessment. We welcome educators, parents, students and others to join us in a discussion-centered workshop. Participants will gain deeper knowledge of the assessment reform landscape and ideas for action in and beyond their schools.
