Challenging K-12 Assessment Policy and Practice To Meet Student Needs
In a recent series, the Center for American Progress examined how assessments in public schools can become effective instruments that help measure whether schools and educators are meeting student needs and educational goals.
Join the Center for American Progress as we continue the conversation around the future of testing in education. A panel of education experts and student advocates will hold a forward-thinking conversation that challenges current K-12 assessment policy and practice and presents fresh perspectives on the role of tests in schools and how assessments can be redesigned to meet the needs of all students and stakeholders.
We would love to hear your questions. Please submit any questions for our distinguished panel via email at CAPeventquestions@americanprogress.org or on Twitter using #FutureOfTesting. Live captioning will be available on Zoom and on the YouTube livestream.
