50 Ways to Test: A Look at State Summative Assessments in 2014-15
Salazar, Tonette
Education Commission of the States
A key aspect of the teaching and learning cycle involves checking the progress of student learning along the way. Traditionally, state summative assessments have served as a way to measure student mastery of the knowledge and skills outlined in the learning expectations or standards at the end of the academic year. As many states began adopting college and career ready standards, such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a need arose for new summative assessments. New standards require new assessments measuring the skills and knowledge outlined in the new standards. The Education Commission of the States has received numerous inquiries for information on where states are in terms of state assessments for the 2014-15 school year. Constituents also request information about federal testing requirements. This document provides a high-level overview of the two testing consortia and federal testing requirements. The comprehensive chart presented provides a snapshot of which assessments are planned in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. for the 2014-15 academic year.
