CEPR researcher Beth Morton will be a presenter for the "Creating the Infrastructure to Support Assessment Use" session at The 2014 Reidy Interactive Lecture Series (RILS). This RILS we will focus on bringing K-12 educational assessment initiatives together. How can districts and schools coordinate the implementation of so many new efforts simultaneously? How can these seemingly independent projects become a cohesive, balanced assessment effort within a district and school providing data to support instruction, program evaluation, and accountability? What will be needed to transform the vast amount of raw data that will be generated into actionable information? Will it be feasible for these locally-based assessment initiatives to produce results that can be used for student, teacher, and school accountability; and is that a desirable goal?
