Making Assessment and Accountability Work for Principals
New Leaders
How and how much should students be tested? What information should schools and districts be required to collect and monitor? And what should be done when that information suggests a school is not meeting the expectations? Those questions are at the heart of Congressional discussions regarding the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This brief offers recommendations on federal policy for assessment and accountability that are grounded in research on effective principal practice and on the direct feedback of effective school leaders. On assessment, New Leaders recommends that a reauthorized ESEA maintain assessment requirements, including the existing flexibility to innovate with new assessments that are comparable statewide.
