National Center for Teacher Effectiveness (NCTE) Student Assessment


"This assessment was developed jointly by Harvard and Educational Testing Services (ETS), and is an open resource for use by researchers and practitioners. Few instruments are available to measure student knowledge and growth in upper elementary grades. Researchers are often constrained to use scores from standardized state tests; the NCTE student assessment provides an alternative. The assessment is designed to be sensitive to variation in teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching and instruction, to measure improvements in student learning that might result from teacher professional development, and to reveal patterns in student achievement with respect to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics."
