The Assessment Network’s deep expertise on assessment makes it uniquely positioned to facilitate change and growth. We are small enough to understand the needs of local schools and districts yet large enough to recognize the influence of policy on national and international outcomes. We work with districts on a range of assessment topics from the development of teacher’s skills to the design of assessment systems.
