As educators we are focused more than ever on narrowing the achievement gap. The gap between student populations of varying demographics, such as minority, economically disadvantaged, learning-disabled, or students with language barriers is continuing to widen despite recent efforts. We believe the opportunity for the relevance of assessment in learning is here and most of all assessment practice focused at the school and classroom level. Assessment is inherently a skilled tool that can be honed by the professional teacher to not only assess learning, but to motivate learning. In this manner, assessment becomes a fundamental part of teaching and is made most useful by the assessment literate teacher. The Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative offers this site as a resource and place to collaborate as colleagues to better understand our evolving accountability system and to better our ability to use assessment for learning.
