Bob Sanders is Pearson’s Director of Performance Scoring.
When I’m not goofing around with my family in 3D movie glasses, I oversee performance scoring across the country for Pearson.
My colleagues and I understand that there are a lot of questions about assessments in the U.S., about how assessments can help learning, and about Pearson’s role in the assessment scoring process. So we thought it would be helpful to share a bit about our work and our people, who are the heart of our operation.
Many of us are teachers and parents or caregivers with children in the school systems. It’s because we directly serve teachers, students, parents, and others, we take our work seriously and strive to get our assessment scoring right every time.
This video is the first in a series about Pearson’s Performance Scoring team. It’s an overview of the assessment scoring process and an introduction to some of the passionate people who read and score student submissions.
Many thanks for watching.
