Tough test: The nation’s troubled early learning assessment landscape
This report explores the early learning measurement landscape, why it is failing students, teachers, parents, and taxpayers, and what can be done to improve early learning assessment after the pandemic subsides. It highlights promising innovations that can help educators and policymakers implement better, more comprehensive measures of young children’s development that are suited to those children and not simply extensions of the standardized tests administered nationwide in grades 3 to 12.
