Abstract

In this keynote, I talk about the Assessment Literacy Leaders in Indiana Project at Indiana University, including what we've learned from our survey of more than 1000 educators in Indiana and our workshops and interviews with educators. I offer three ways that educators can hold accountability tests accountable: don't let the assessment do more than it was designed for, recognize the limits of standardized assessments, and get involved.
