SETDA works collectively and in partnership with the federal government and national organizations and serves as a forum for inter-state collaboration and cooperation on a range of issues, including the identification and sharing of research and best practices, the establishment of public-private partnerships, state-federal relations and advocacy, and professional development for state educational technology directors and other state education agency staff. In addition, SETDA undertakes ad hoc projects of national significance to advance issues of core concern to the membership. This grant will support a series of convenings and reports that bring together State Education Technology Directors, State Assessment Directors and members of the federal assessment consortia to analyze and address cost and capability issues related to state technology infrastructure in support of the new large scale federal assessment programs.
