Louisiana, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico Apply for Innovative Assessment Pilot

April 3, 2018

Alyson Klein reports in Education Week that Louisiana, New Hampshire, and Puerto Rico have officially submitted applications for the ESSA’s Innovative Assessment Pilot, which “allows states to try out new forms of testing in a handful of districts, with the goal of eventually taking them statewide.” Initially, more than a dozen states “mulled applying, but ended up deciding against it,” possibly because “the pilot has clear rules that don’t make participation easy.“ In an op-ed on The Hill, Louisiana State Superintendent John White explained his rationale for participating in the pilot.
