Standards and Assessments to Support Personalized LearningNovember 15, 2016
Members of the Rodel Teacher Council released a series of policy recommendations to help state education leaders “scale personalized learning” opportunities and reinforce high classroom expectations. Under the Every Student Succeeds Act states should take advantage of chances “to pursue innovative assessment and accountability models,” the report notes. Through high, comparable standards and high-quality assessments states are beginning to improve student outcomes. With the new flexibility afforded to local leaders by ESSA, “states have a responsibility to remain committed to the success of our students,” explains Delaware Governor Jack Markell – which means keeping the bar high for all students.
