School accountability systems are often criticized for being disconnected from or even hindering the important work of improving schools. What is the role of accountability to promote better outcomes for students, and how do we design and implement systems that are more likely to deliver on that promise?
In this second session of our Assessment and Accountability NASBE Member Learning Series, led by the Center for Assessment’s Chris Domaleski, we explore important principles and practical steps to get more from school accountability. This learning session covered:
- What is school accountability? And, briefly, what are ESSA requirements?
- The role of the state in district accountability
- Ways to design school accountability that supports improvement in student achievement.
Join us for upcoming sessions in this learning series, intended for state board members and staff:
- August 17, 3 pm ET | Assessment Innovation: Selecting the Right Path Forward
- September 28, 3 pm ET | Ensuring Testing Practices Are Accessible and Fair
