Building capacity and promoting innovation in education accountability has never been more important. With the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), states have an opportunity to exercise considerably more choice and control over their school accountability systems. With these exciting opportunities come challenges to design fair, valid, and effective accountability systems. In this context, the more than 30 states in the Accountability Systems & Reporting (ASR) State Collaborative on Assessment and Student Standards (SCASS) work to identify and share strategies that improve the effectiveness and technical quality of state education accountability models.
