Update on Process to Adopt a New Assessment Aligned to the Common Core

Background information is in message sent on April 9, 2013 from Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton to Superintendents and Principals, which was included in the April 11, 2013 Assessment and Accountability Update.

Rob Saxton is leading a charge to review assessment options in a timely manner so that ODE can present recommendations to the State Board and the Legislature. ODE is bringing a committee together of educators, education partners, State Board members, and parents, tentatively scheduled for May 3 and May 10, to weigh in on this review of the assessments options anticipated to be available for 2014-2015, including Smarter Balanced, PARCC, and any other relevant assessments. ODE staff are preparing background information and identifying essential questions for the committee.
