Coherence, Comprehensiveness, and Capacity in Assessment Systems: The Pittsburgh Experience


by Paul G. LaMahieu & JoAnne T. Eresh - 1996

We begin by summarizing the guiding vision and how it influenced the definition of practice. We then describe the essential elements of an expanded vision of assessment and relate how those elements were developed and introduced. We enumerate the ways that the district sought to increase the capacities of its professionals in the development and use of assessment. Finally, we share insights earned and lessons learned that may benefit others undertaking a similar comprehensive redefinition of assessment as an essential element of educational practice.
