      Test-based Accountability Systems: The Importance of Paying Attention to Consequences

      Please join us for ETS's 16th William H. Angoff Memorial Lecture: Test-based Accountability Systems: The Importance of Paying Attention to Consequences This year’s lecturer, Suzanne Lane, Professor in the Research Methodology Program at the University of Pittsburgh, will address intended and potentially unintended consequences of test-based state accountability systems – an important issue for researchers and policymakers to examine to improve educational opportunities for all students. In the lecture, she will provide a conceptual framework for evaluating consequences and discuss the inherent conflict in test-based systems between the goal of accountability and the need to support teaching and learning. She will also discuss implications for state assessment and accountability systems such as the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (Smarter Balanced). Her talk will also discuss the impact of alternate assessments used for students with the most severe disabilities. If you have any questions, please contact Anna Vasquez-Zitani at avasquez-zitani@ets.org. We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.!
