for support of Louisiana’s Department of Education ESSA Section 1204 pilot program  
The Northwest Evaluation Association is a research-based nonprofit that provides assessments to measure student growth and proficiency and delivers insights to help tailor instruction. The association will support the Louisiana Department of Education as it pilot tests a measurement and accountability model in selected districts that assesses deeper learning outcomes and uses transparent reporting on a broadened range of indicators. This effort will reciprocally engage states and school districts in establishing more meaningful, equitable, and accountable measures of learning.
