Innovative Assessment Pilot

This action team will propose an innovative teamwork/problem-solving assessment to be administered once in the elementary grades (3-5) and once in the middle grades (6-8). The innovative assessment will use group work and team-based problem solving; will focus on critical thinking skills; and will include a writing component. This action team will propose one or more innovative assessment options. If the proposed innovative assessment meets the qualifications required for the ESSA Innovative Assessment Pilot grant, the action team will ensure it meets the application criteria.
