A Point of Interest at the CCSSO Large-Scale Conference

For those of you attending the CCSSO National Conference on Large-Scale Assessment, consider attending one of the presentations organized by Pearson Educational Measurement.

To all those contemplating growth scales, the session “Measures of Student Achievement, Vertical Articulation and Realities of Large Scale Assessment” should be of interest. The presentation is Monday, June 26th at 1:30 p.m. in the Elizabethan D Room.

This program addresses issues encountered when implementation of growth scales are attempted across several separate statewide programs simultaneously. Implications for both state and federal policy will be discussed by two distinguished speakers, Dr. Edward Roeber from the Michigan Department of Education and Dr. Patricia L. Olson from the Minnesota Department of Education.

Drop by and learn about the challenges of applying growth models under NCLB.
