Future of Assessment in Ed. Calls for “Actionable” Info

The Gordon Commission on the Future of Assessment in Education released a report calling on educational organizations to join a 10-year research and development effort focused on improving assessments nationwide. The report acknowledges the importance of post-assessment feedback, noting assessment systems need to include tools that give educators actionable info about their students. This enters the realm of Over-the-Counter Data (OTCD), which involves steps to make data actionable, as opposed to static, confusing, or misleading.
