26
Summative Assessment
  • Developing large scale 21st century assessments
    is challenging
  • Expensive government investment in innovation
    is essential (enhanced assessment grants).
  • Test development is bound by disciplinary
    conventions.
  • The status quo tends to drive much of what is
    done.


27
Summative Assessment
  • Innovation is possible and essential
  • Assessments drive learning
  • States reframing of standards and RFP process
  • Vendors can innovate and so can the government..
