Power of Performance Assessments

All students should have the opportunity to engage in meaningful work, learning to transfer knowledge and apply complex skills in preparation for college, career and civic life. Performance assessment that is linked to rigorous curriculum and instruction helps drive more comprehensive learning and enables the educator to measure achievement as required by the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and in preparation for 21st century life.

The Center for Collaborative Education’s Quality Performance Assessment Initiative (QPA) works with schools, districts and state boards of education to build capacity to address achievement gaps and make meaningful assessment accessible to the widest and most diverse cohort possible.
