Achieve, the managing partner for one of the two state assessment consortia, received a $350,000 Foundation grant in March to develop prototypes of tests that measure deeper learning. Achieve now seeks support for state and national communications teams to educate parents, educators, the media, and the public about the benefits of replacing current testing systems with this next generation of assessments.
