Bi-Partisan Agreement for Better, Fairer, and Fewer Tests
Collaborative for Student Success

Support for assessments that measure how students are progressing is a bi-partisan no-brainer.

Annual assessments aligned to the Common Core match the skills and content students are learning and practicing in the classroom on a daily basis. Results from the assessments are one of several indicators, in combination with report cards, teacher feedback, and classroom work, used to create a complete picture of a student’s progress in school. While too much testing is never a good thing, neither is opting out, which denies students, teachers, and parents  valuable information.
