The Technical Issues in Large Scale Assessment (TILSA) State Collaborative on Assessment and Student Standards (SCASS) is comprised primarily of state assessment directors, data analysts, and psychometricians. The group of approximately 32 states and 15 partners works on a variety of technical topics states are facing with their summative assessments. Expert speakers are invited to present on current and future topics such as scoring technology-enhanced items and moving toward automated item generation. As technical issues intersect with federal policy, we also discuss the local assessment option in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the peer review submissions. The group shares resources and discusses successes and challenges.
