Supporting Educators and Students through Implementation of an Innovative Assessment and Accountability System

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides an opportunity for states to develop an innovative assessment and accountability system to evaluate student and school performance. The Innovative Assessment and Accountability Demonstration Authority (herein known as the “Demonstration Authority” or “innovative pilot”) allows for states to have local districts pilot assessments that are different than the statewide, standardized assessments. No matter which model is selected, states will need to ensure that educators and students are supported in multiple ways. This support may include helping educators design, implement, or score assessments, or informing and engage parents and students as stakeholders in the implementation process of an innovative assessment system.
