Common Assessments in High School: A Graphic Version

By Catherine Gewertz — August 06, 2010 1 min read

Not long ago, we told you that the Center for K-12 Assessment & Performance Management had created graphic depictions of the proposals submitted to the federal Ed Department under its Race to the Top program to create comprehensive assessment systems.

We mentioned that the group was working on a similar graphic depiction of the RTT proposal to create a system of high school assessments. And now, it’s done. You can see it on the Center’s homepage. (Click on “the State Consortium on Board Examination Systems (SCOBES).”)

If you need a refresher course in what the Race to the Top assessment competition is all about, and a description of the proposals submitted by the three contenders, read our story. And if you’re a really big geek who likes to read the actual proposals themselves, our story has links to those, too. Enjoy.
