Balanced Assessment Resources

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) emphasizes the need for a balanced assessment system (BAS). The K-12 community understands the inherent rightness of a BAS and schools and districts are analyzing their systems to make sure that it is a comprehensive assessment plan. K-12 site and district analysis begins with establishing common definitions and common understandings of the purpose of each different type of assessment found within a balanced assessment system.

This site contains multiple resources to assist districts in their analysis of their current assessment systems.
