Transitioning to Next Generation Assessments: A Roadmap to 2014

“Moving to online testing

requires an entirely

different way of thinking

about things. Now that

we’ve completed the

transition, I feel that it’s

probably the best thing

Virginia ever did. It’s

provided so many benefits

for us and we’re just

beginning to be able to

completely utilize the

power of being online. “
