Common Core Standards: Integrating Local Accountability and a Comprehensive Assessment System

The Common Core State Standards call for a new, powerful view of education. Teaching and assessing the standards is not enough. Districts need an integration of systems and a culture of change.

More districts are looking to build a comprehensive assessment model that is driven at the local level. Register for the online webinar “Common Core Standards: Integrating Local Accountability and a Comprehensive Assessment System” hosted by WestEd SchoolsMovingUp, ATI, and Creighton Unified School District on February 29, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. P.T. This webinar serves as a continuation of the WestEd webinar, Common Core Standards: Transitioning to New Rigor.

The speakers will review how districts can think about the new rigor required in building a local comprehensive assessment system. Attendees will learn about:
  • Decisions faced by districts across the country when considering aligning curriculum with the Common Core State Standards and building an integrated assessment system to meet the requirements of the new rigor.
  • Creighton School District's (Arizona) process of thinking about how to approach assessment and working with WestEd.
  • Districts' use of ATI’s comprehensive assessment system in meeting the assessment and instructional challenges inherent in the Common Core State Standards.
