All Eyes on Door #3

We have the commissioner's recommendation on student assessment. We have results from last spring's PARCC test administrations. Now, the Board must balance all of the testimony it has heard and read - and call the question.

But, how might standardized assessments for K-12 be designed to aid learning? What if, instead of keeping with the same high-stakes testing regime that has always been done, we took a different approach (as NH and CA have done) in the design and administration of something that unlocks deeper learning opportunities for students?
