Meet A Team - Meet our ELA Assessment Team!

We know educators have concerns about assessments. We do, too. That’s why we design ours to make teaching easier. Educators often feel that assessments result in over-testing and lost instructional time. They’re used as blunt tools for evaluation and accountability. They raise artificial stakes—and so high that they create panic. That’s the opposite of what our assessments are about. Ours are tools for instruction that help you see your students more clearly. 

Behind our ELA assessments is a dedicated team of previous educators who strive to create equitable outcomes for all students. These teammates create formative, flexible and reflective ELA and literacy assessments that help teachers get actionable data to maximize student learning. Alongside their work to create rigorous, standards-aligned content is the selection of affirming and empowering passages and narratives that mirror the diverse identities in schools across the country. 

This team credits their success to the deeply collaborative nature of their work. As members of the Instructional Products Team they are one department dedicated to ensuring the quality of our assessments and work closely with our assessment operations content editors and Spanish-fluent assessment associate. They also work with colleagues across ANet to gather on-the-ground feedback and partner with industry leaders outside the organization, such as those specializing in early literacy and the Science of Reading, to ensure that our content reflects the most current research. This passionate team shares their “why” for working at ANet, why educational equity is important, how their team contributes to ANet’s mission, and some of their favorite team moments.
