Learning About Assessment: An Evaluation of a Ten-State Effort to Build Assessment Capacity in High Schools

In 2006, the State of Delaware and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) partnered
with the Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE) to conduct an evaluation of a
ten-state initiative that sought to enhance assessment practices at the high school level. This
effort aimed to help states, districts, and schools build familiarity with instruction that uses
assessment as part of the learning process, a practice known as assessment for learning. This report summarizes the evaluation research on the ten-state initiative.
