Preparing Students and Teachers for the Common Core Assessments—A Case Study
The Assessments tied to the Common Core State Standards require significant lift from states and districts as well as the teachers who will be implementing more formative testing to gauge student readiness for the exams. This webinar highlights the collaboration between the state of Rhode Island and Measured Progress on the Rhode Island Interim Assessment Program to create assessments that empower educators. Join our guest from the state’s Department of Education for an in-depth examination of how the assessments were constructed and why they can work for Rhode Island as well as nationwide.
In conjunction with the state, Measured Progress developed online testing tools that incorporate accessibility features to create a comfortable assessment environment and more accurately measure student learning. Advanced technology and rigorous items enable teachers to create tests and pinpoint what they want to know about student achievement.
