Brief Session Description: Online Assessment is changing the way educators collect information on student performance and personalizing instructional practice. CoSN in partnership with AASA and NSBA has developed a white paper and resources to support the shift to digital practice in assessments. The role of assessment is transforming both in instructional and administrative practice. The Common Core State Standards effort helped push school districts forward in building out infrastructure to support online assessments and in doing so also provided students with greater access to digital resources. The future of assessment will be dramatically different then today and will require districts to move their assessment departments from an audit function to an intimate relationship with instructional design.
