The Understanding Language/Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity is a leading university-based developer of state-of-the-art performance assessments. It will conduct a multistate effort to develop and maintain an online performance assessment resource bank and support policy outreach on the use of performance assessment for school accountability. It will also develop massive open online courses (MOOCs) to help teachers, districts, and states meet the needs of English language learners with the Common Core and Next Generation Science standards. Both projects will make improved instructional resources and aligned assessments more widely available, develop educator capacity to use such tools, and advance policy reform to support and assess deeper learning outcomes.
