The Place of Feedback in High-Stakes Assessment

A Student Success Week 2014 Session

Some would argue that the Common Core State Standards and No Child Left Behind have placed undue emphasis on testing and assessment and student outcomes. What these arguments gloss over is the function of assessments--particularly when done properly--as a means of creating actionable feedback to enhance learning.

Join us for a conversation with Wayne Camara, the Senior Vice President, Research at ACT® as he shares insights into the connections, both present and future, between high-stakes assessment, feedback and standards. The interview will cover topics such as the importance of aligning assessment feedback to standards, how high-stakes assessment feedback might look in the near future and the benefits this poses for students.
