Next-Generation Assessment Interoperability Standards

As states and school districts around the country adopt and implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), an unprecedented level of interoperability will be essential for the next generation of large scale assessments used to capture student performance and track student growth.

Pearson has released "Next-Generation Assessment Interoperability Standards," a new white paper that makes recommendations for how vendors and assessment governance boards can collaborate to extend these standards to support new and innovative types of assessments and delivery systems.

Recommendation include:

  • Minimize Technology Constraints
  • Separate Content and Formatting
  • Support Wide Range of Content
  • Address Assessment Structure, Accommodations and Additional Standards
