Education Week Blog, starting March 17, 2014

Madhabi Chatterji, AERI's director, and James Harvey of the National Superintendents Roundtable, are co-facilitating a 10-week blog titled, “Assessing the Assessments: K-12 Measurement and Accountability in the 21st century”, which featured debate and dialogue among measurement and policy scholars in education, school district superintendents and a teacher of the year awardee. The blog was originally posted on Education Week's web site.
