Assessment is not for its own sake. It's about ensuring students are learning what we want them to. #APC17— Matthew D. Pistilli (@mdpistilli) June 16, 2017
The context of assessment HAS to be abt best serving students, their families, the state, & the nation. It's well beyond satisfaction #APC17— Matthew D. Pistilli (@mdpistilli) June 16, 2017
