The Council of Chief State School Officers’ Innovation Lab Network (ILN) is a group of states taking action to establish comprehensive systems of formative and summative assessment, including performance-based measures of deeper learning that provide meaningful measures of college and career readiness throughout a student’s education.

CCSSO and iNACOL have partnered to present a series of three webinars that highlight innovative practices in various states and school districts, as well as the work of the ILN.

This final webinar in the series will focus on the assessment and accountability systems in place to support and maintain a competency-based education system.

The webinar will feature an educational leader from Kentucky who will discuss measures for tracking student progress and growth, the various formative and summative assessments systems that are now in place, measuring teacher effectiveness, and the variety of reports utilized by administrators and teachers to indicate progress towards common goals. Various assessment tools will be shared that can be modified and utilized in other schools and districts with a similar vision.
