    ASSESSMENTS:  Arizona Student Achievement Testing: Where Are We Going and Why Are We Going There?


    Should assessments be a tool for measuring student achievement and student growth? 

    Can assessments be a tool to help promote student equity? 

    Can assessments be a tool in helping to close the achievement gap? 

    Are we assessing for success?   ....long term success? 

    Can assessments predict long-term success and economic independence? 

    What is the relationship of assessments & student engagement  in Middle School?  High School?  Career Exploration? 

    Is the school grading system a valid, continuous assessment? 


    Join educators, business and community leaders, and policy makers in exploring these questions at ABEC's Annual Conference.
