Join Assessment Reformers Online

Assessment reform advocates are sharing information, resources and strategies in a new email discussion group. Parents, educators, community advocates, civil rights activists and others are welcome to join!

How does this work?
When you "subscribe" to the list, you automatically receive the email messages sent by the other subscribers. You can read these messages and reply to them, or send your own message to the group. Your message is then sent to all the other subscribers.

What is this discussion about?
This organizing tool was created to help people working on issues of assessment reform and to promote reform that is consistent with the Principles and Indicators for Student Assessment Systems of the National Forum on Assessment. This group should focus less on assessment tools themselves, such as how to do good portfolios or design a performance event (though references to such materials are quite welcome), and more on successful strategies for changing assessment practices and systems.

The Name of the EMail Group is ARN-L.
