The Role of Assessments in Education from a Business Perspective

December 01, 2015

“That’s what’s really at risk; quality of life and the ability of the United States to compete on a global stage.”

“It’s not just about sending out the standards to teachers…It’s about providing support for teachers… that means high quality, sustained professional development that is grounded in data.”

“At the end of the day…we need tests because…they paint a picture of an individual child’s strengths and weaknesses…of where we can help the child improve.”
