The new federal K-12 education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), presents states with historic opportunities to increase flexibility around systems of assessments and educator development systems. By taking advantage of these new flexibilities, states can transform K-12 education toward personalized, student-centered learning.

What can these new systems of assessments look like under ESSA, and how can we build educator capacity around these new assessments? View this archived webinar to hear from assessment experts Brandt Redd and Bonnie Hain on how states can build systems of high-quality assessments that drive student learning and provide teachers with real-time, meaningful information about a student’s progress toward competency attainment.

By fundamentally rethinking the role of assessments for teaching and learning, states can create systems that enable personalized learning for all students and personalized professional development for all educators.
