Three States “Raise Hands” on Innovative Assessment Pilot

February 6, 2018

Education Week’s Alyson Klein reports that Arizona, Louisiana, and New Hampshire have informed the U.S. Department of Education of their interest in applying for ESSA’s Innovative Assessment Pilot, and more could follow before the April 2 application deadline. Under ESSA, the Education Secretary can give up to seven states (or groups of states) the chance to test new and (hopefully) innovative approaches to assessments.
