Raising The BAR: Becoming Assessment Ready: FAQ

Description As we worked with the case study school districts as well as others across the country, four major areas of concern emerged about becoming assessment ready including: network infrastructure, devices, professional development and funding. CoSN and the eLearn Institute conducted a national online survey with school districts to find out what key questions and concerns they had about each of these categories. School districts surveyed included members from CoSN as well as the Council of the Great City Schools. The responses were collated and combined into a series of questions then posed to the assessment consortia. The questions were segmented into the four major areas as well as a general category to capture recurring questions that did not fit into the four major areas. The written responses from the Consortia addressing the questions are provided in our FAQ. CoSN's Raising the BAR Project is conducted in partnership with ENA (Education Networks of America) and the eLearn Institute.
