More about the 2017 Reidy Interactive Lecture series from the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment (NCIEA):

The goal of this conference is to draw together those involved or interested in efforts to assess the NGSS to better understand:

  • The NGSS and the challenges the standards pose to assessment,
  • Approaches to assessing the NGSS and how the results of those approaches might be evaluated, and
  • What the future of NGSS assessment might look like, with emphasis on what questions or issues will become important and how current and future design efforts can address them.
