The system aligns curriculum, instruction, and assessment around the key learning goals spelled out in the standards for college and career readiness.
The system consists of a toolbox of assessments that meet a variety of different purposes and that provide various users with information they need to make decisions.
The information from assessments supports valid inferences about student progress toward college and career readiness, as well as actionable information for multiple users.
The assessments enable all students to demonstrate what they know and are able to do.
