Standardized Assessments, Achievement Equity, and Curricular Alignment

The focus on standardized assessments in NCLB and now in ESSA has highlighted performance inequities across demographic groups; but often these datapoints are just numbers on a state report card for constituents to shake their head over. Jeffrey Smith, Vice-President of NAAD, will provide a brief example of how a large high school district uses these assessment data to engage staff and drive conversation about curricular alignment and helping all students succeed. Join us to share your strategies, thoughts and questions.
