    Overview
    • PISA
    • Competition is global.
    • Internationally we are being held to different standards.
    • PISA is an assessment that is looking toward the future. It is rooted in “labor market demands.”
    • Basic skills are necessary, but not sufficient.

    • Developing large scale 21 st century assessments is challenging
    • Expensive – government investment in innovation is essential (enhanced assessment grants).
    • Test development is bound by disciplinary conventions.
    • The status quo tends to drive much of what is done.
    Summative Assessment
    • Innovation is possible and essential
    • Assessments drive learning
    • States – reframing of standards and RFP process
