10 Principles for Building a High-quality System of Assessments

The Ten Principles for Building a High-Quality System of Assessments, a collaborative effort led by Jobs for the Future (JFF), and endorsed by 19 organizations and experts from education, research, workforce, and policy fields, provides a comprehensive roadmap for school leaders to improve current assessments and systems, focus on equity, and develop a learner’s academic proficiency, career skills, and civic aptitude.

Ten Principles draws on collective expertise developed over the past several decades of studying and designing assessments and assessment systems. A high-quality system begins with a grounded theory of action and offers a coherent array of assessments needed for success in college and careers. These assessments are compared, analyzed, and refined at regular intervals to remove duplicative testing and improve reliability.
