Fewer and Better Local Assessments: A Toolkit for Educators

Plug and Play Tools

These are designed to help busy school and district leaders so they don’t have to start from scratch. Many tools are adapted from Achieve’s work with states and districts, Education First’s and ANet’s work in Syracuse, states including Connecticut and Florida and leading organizations like Achievement First, the Council of Chief State School Officers and Student Achievement Partners. School system leaders can download and adapt these tools for their own use. Examples of tools include:

  • Background on high-quality assessments
  • A sample school assessment inventory
  • Tools to guide district decision-making
  • Sample completed assessment strategy documents from Syracuse and Achievement First

Please check back frequently as we’ll update these resources during our work with districts.
