Next Gen Commission tries to move toward final testing recommendations
Date Posted: 6/16/2016 | Author: Monty Exter
The Texas Commission on Next Generation Assessments and Accountability met in Austin early this week for what will likely be the last time before commissioners unveil their official recommendations at their final meeting on July 27. The commission deliberated about half of the recommendations they had identified for consideration, with time spent on individual recommendations ranging from hours to a few minutes with little rhyme or reason as to what received significant consideration and what didn't or any sort of logical order to the topics discussed. Stay tuned to Teach the Vote for further reporting and final commentary on the commission's official recommendations.

Learn more about the testing issues that the commission is reviewing in this recent article from The Texas Tribune and in our earlier blog post about the commission. Don't forget, also, that you can provide your own input on testing and accountability issues to the State Board of Education through its survey happening now.
