Retool Assessment and Accountability
Strategies to Make the Vision a Reality
The new accountability system includes five categories. As part of this reform, the state test is computer-based and partially adaptive, allowing some adjustments to determine grade level. In 2016, when the state has several years of data, Connecticut’s accountability system will hold schools accountable for improving student achievement over time, rather than just taking into account static measures of achievement. A revised accountability system is in the process of implementation with multiple data sources, not just test scores. In addition, the new accountability system has a major emphasis on growth of student learning.
