DESCRIPTION

Although districts have many assessments, they may not have a balanced system of assessments. In this session, participants will learn about the rationale for balanced assessment systems, the intended uses of assessment results, and the criteria for balanced systems of assessment. This requires an honest appraisal of how well current assessments are meeting these needs. This session concludes with a discussion of the barriers to implementing balanced assessment systems.
