publication pdfBuilding an Interim Assessment System: A Workbook for School

The 2008 publication and the companion workbook (2010) provide a definition and corresponding framework for a thorough, district-level self-examination of readiness for the development or acquisition of an interim assessment system. The workbook can also be used by staff at state departments of education when district-level educators contact a state agency seeking guidance in this area. The workbook is built around a series of questions intended to guide a structured consideration of building or revisiting a district's interim assessment system. A definition of interim assessment is provided as well as a thoughtful comparison with formative assessment.
