This report from the Aurora Institute and Center for Assessment looks at ways in which state leaders can build balanced assessment systems that support mastery-based education. In assessment systems aligned with competency education, assessments are coherently linked to target competencies and learning progressions, provide a range of evidence for each student, and monitor progress over time. This report explores the components of such assessment systems as well as the opportunities and barriers districts and states will face. It also discusses the roles of assessment in advancing equity.
The report will be of interest to both state and district leaders. This blog by the authors provides a great introduction before reading the full report.
