Peer Review Assistance
Center on Standards and Assessments Implementation
The U.S. Department of Education's review of state assessment systems is an evidence-based, peer review process for which each state submits evidence to demonstrate that its assessment system meets a set of established criteria, called Critical Elements. Critical Elements represent the Elementary and Secondary Education Act statutory and regulatory requirements that state assessment systems must meet. The six sections of critical elements that cover these requirements are: (1) Statewide System of Standards and Assessments; (2) Assessment System Operations; (3) Technical Quality--Validity; (4) Technical Quality--Other; (5) Inclusion of All Students; and (6) Academic Achievement Standards and Reporting. To support states and ensure that the correct evidence is submitted for each critical element, the Center on Standards and Assessment Implementation (CSAI) can provide technical assistance supporting the different requirements. This report provides data organizers that highlight critical elements of peer review, specifically, those critical elements for which CSAI can provide support and/or resources.
