Achieve Webinar: Towards a Better Test: Communicating Assessment Results to Families and Educators

Printer-friendly version

To date, the score reports from end-of-year assessments have not been as helpful for families to understand how their children are doing or as useful to teachers to improve instruction as they should be. Achieve developed sample student assessment reports to help states, districts, and schools better communicate student assessment results to teachers, school leaders and families. Cory Curl, then Achieve’s Senior Fellow for Assessment and Accountability, highlighted these model reports and then held a conversation with Teresa Ramos, Outreach Director, from Advance Illinois around Advance Illinois’ work to engage with parents at feedback sessions to better understand how to effectively communicate test results to families and educators. An open dialogue continued on how to improve score reporting and what issues need to be addressed to do so. Webinar Recording (April 14, 2015)
