Assessing the Assessments: What Reporters Need to Know

EWA is in Northern California this week for our journalists-only seminar on assessments. We’ll be digging into the significant changes underway in how schools measure student growth and achievement. I’m also looking forward to visiting Impact Academy in Hayward, which is using student-centered learning and the portfolio model of assessment. 

In the meantime, if you’re writing about standards and assessment, a good place to start is our Topics page. You’ll find key coverage, the latest news, and even questions to ask when doing your own reporting.

And if you’re writing about the Common Core and assessments, we have three upcoming regional seminars for reporters to help you make the most of your reporting on the new standards and expectations. Take a look at the schedule of events, and mark the date for the seminar location that works best for you.
