ESSA and Assessments
One of the projected outcomes of the federal education bill signed into law last December - the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) - is a reduced emphasis on high-stakes testing. Ideally, ESSA has the potential to give teachers the latitude to meet the needs of their students rather than simply focus on tests. The National PTA Board of Directors passed a Position Statement on Assessments earlier this year HERE. You can view the Assessment Committee's presentation HERE and September meeting summary HERE.
