With the Biden administration largely holding fast on the resumption of state assessments this year, critical questions remain on the scope of testing, as well as what can and should be done with the results.
Experts discussed what testing will look like, strengths and limitations of the exams, and other key issues during a May 3 session at the Education Writers Association’s 2021 National Seminar.
The participants were:
- Andrew Ho, Harvard University
- Scott Marion, Center for Assessment
- Lynn Vasquez, New Mexico Public Education Department
- Erik Robelen, Education Writers Association (Moderator)
