The Gordon Commission Public Policy Statement


"The Gordon Commission on the Future of Assessment in Education was created to consider the nature and content of American education during the 21st century and how assessment can be used most effectively to advance that vision by serving the educational and informational needs of students, teachers and society. The Commission's goal in issuing this brief public policy statement is to stimulate a productive national conversation about assessment and its relationship to teaching and learning at a time
when developments in assessment and education in the United States present a
remarkable opportunity to reconceptualize the purposes of educational assessments. The statement advances arguments for: (1) Transforming Assessment to Support Teaching, Learning and Human Development, (2) Reconsidering Assessment: Why, What and How We Assess, (3) Moving Forward: The Opportunity."
