This year, NCSA will focus on "Closing the Gap: Building Equitable Assessment Systems for All Students." States have demonstrated their leadership and commitment to ensuring the success of all students by adopting college- and career-readiness standards. To accurately measure students' academic performance and their progress toward college and career readiness, states have transitioned to high-quality assessments. Many states implemented new assessments in the 2014-2015 school year. Results from these high-quality assessments can help states better understand how the overall student population is performing as well as to identify what gaps exist between different groups of students. The goal of the 2016 conference is to move beyond the creation of these assessments and give states a forum to share the best practices, strategies, research studies, data, and resources that support states in using high-quality assessment systems to help narrow or close gaps between groups and improve academic achievement for all students.
