Meaningful Measurement: The Role of Assessments in Improving High School Education in the Twenty-First Century, is a collection of essays, written by leading experts, that discuss important assessment issues, examines promising assessment practices from across the globe, and offers recommendations on how the federal government can support an assessment agenda for the twenty-first century. Topics include assessments that measure students’ college and career readiness; performance assessments; the role of benchmark assessments; assessing high school students who are English language learners and students with disabilities; the benefits of international assessments; the role of technology in improving assessments and their use; and how assessment design affects the implementation of a growth model at the high school level.
