Many different parts must fit together so students, teachers, and parents can see a clear picture of academic achievement.
State leaders, school districts, teachers, experts, specialists—even parents—are all part of a multi-step process to create assessments.
Questions can be evaluated and tested for as long as 18 months before making it onto a test.
