NCSA 2018


About NCSA

The primary objective of the NCSA is to promote sharing of information and best practices that will help states achieve their educational purposes through having the strongest assessment systems possible. Assessment systems include those elements essential to assessments (such as content standards and test design) and assessment infrastructure (such as the technologies necessary for conducting high-quality assessments). The conference also supports professional development, assessment research, and accountability systems that use assessment data.


CCSSO's 2018 National Conference on Student Assessment registration will open in January 2018.
