Lessons Learned: Implementing and Improving Comprehensive and Balanced Learning and Assessment Systems in High School--A Report for State Education Leaders. Final Report from the Delaware Enhanced Assessment Grant
Rindone, Douglas
Council of Chief State School Officers
The Delaware Enhanced Assessment Grant (DE EAG) project was funded by the U.S. Department of Education in 2006 as an initiative to assist 10 state departments of education (SDE) teams, and local school district and high school teams, in implementing a comprehensive and balanced learning and assessment system (CBAS) with a strong emphasis on a formative classroom assessment component. Along with the states, project partners included the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Educational Testing Service, Edvantia, Inc., and the Center for Policy Research in Education (CPRE). Results of the project provide an empirically-tested "road map" for states, districts, and schools, particularly high schools, in the implementation of formative classroom assessment that aligns with other components of the state's learning and assessment system. As the DE EAG prime contractor, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) conducted a "lessons learned" survey of the participating states to provide project leaders and the federal government with increased understanding of the issues associated with providing large scale professional development and dissemination. This document provides a synopsis of current state status relative to each project goal and summarizes some of the implementation lessons learned by state participants. (Contains 4 tables.)
