Earlier this summer, ANet released guidance on how schools should approach assessment planning for the 20-21 school year. It discusses what data to collect and explores which assessments are best at collecting that data. The guidance, featured in CCSSO’s Restart & Recovery: Considerations for Teaching & Learning, also recommends that schools take a tiered approach considering what data is needed for ALL students, SOME students and FEW students.
Over the past several months, many organizations have published guidelines and principles about how to set up assessment systems for instructional recovery in 20-21. To synthesize those recommendations in one place, ANet has created an assessment planning checklist that combines many organizations’ guidance in one place, formatted for clarity and simplicity. The good news: there is strong alignment between the recommendations and assertions being made.
As leaders plan for 20-21, they can use this checklist to evaluate their assessment strategies, informed by recommendations made by the Council of Great City Schools (CGCS), the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and ANet.
