    6. 6. • • Regular feedback aligned with the most important standards allowing teachers to adjust instruction to meet the diverse needs of the students Ongoing collaboration with teachers in order to determine strategies that will lead to success for all students

    8. 8. “It is critical that all of the assessed standards be truly significant. From an instructional perspective, it is better for tests to measure a handful of powerful skills accurately than it is for tests to do an inaccurate job of measuring many skills.” ~ W. J. Popham, Test Better, Teach Better, 2003, p. 143
