While more than two-thirds of states already conduct some kind of statewide online assessments, the new assessments of the Common Core State Standards from PARCC and Smarter Balanced are increasing both interest and anxiety in school districts. To help relieve the anxiety, SETDA has created a series of case studies Implementing Online Assessments: Pathways to Success (assessmentstudies.setda.org), with a narrative and resources. Each narrative provides an in-depth look at what it took a district to implement the assessments as well as key factors in each state’s approach to infrastructure and training and communication. There also are downloadable resources that range from training agendas to checklists for technology readiness to sample letters from the state to school districts. Mike Nelson, Director of Curriculum and assessment of Coeur d"Alene School District 271, ID, Patches Hill, Technology Systems Manager of Indian River School District, DE and Scott Smith, Chief Technology Officer of Mooresville Graded School District, NC will explain what they did to get ready for their online assessments and answer your questions.
