Making assessment data approachable
The Center for School and Student Progress partners directly with schools and districts across the country, engaging in collaborative research on issues that are most relevant to educators’ work with their students.
The Center provides expert consultation to NWEA partner schools and districts to help make assessment data actionable to improve outcomes for students and applicable to address myriad policy questions. Researchers in the Center also collaborate with schools to create new reports and data visualizations and advise on best practices for assessment integrity.
