James Harvey, a doctoral student in the Educational Leadership program at Seattle University College of Education (COE), is behind an effort to launch a national conversation on assessment and accountability between scholars and school officials.
From mid-March through mid-April, Education Week will feature a blog on “Assessing the Assessments,” a partnership between the Assessment and Evaluation Research Initiative at Teachers College, Columbia University and the National Superintendents Roundtable.
Harvey, executive director of the National Superintendents Roundtable, and Madhabi Chatterji from Teachers College at Columbia University, will serve as moderators of the month-long assessment blog.
The blog will explore validity issues in assessment, the “black box” of the Common Core, challenges involved in measuring achievement status versus achievement growth, assessment of education versus assessment for education, along with a variety of topics involving international assessment.
COE Dean, Dr. Deanna Sands, will participate in the blog in mid-April as one of a series of expert scholars from universities around the country who will provide thoughtful observations on such issues as measurement, accountability, and assessment. These blog posts will be accompanied by commentary and responses from expert front-line K-12 leaders, including Tacoma Superintendent of Schools, Carla Santorno, who is a '08 graduate of COE’s Educational Administration program.
It is hoped that members of the assessment community, teachers, principals, parents and administrators will add their thoughts and insights to the blog as it develops.
