Student assessment is a high priority for school districts as they transition to the Common Core State Standards. But this is not the first time that California has embraced an effort to use more authentic means to assess student learning.

Drawing on the recently published brief, Learning from the Past: Exploring California’s CLAS Experience to Inform Assessment of the Common Core, the webinar included key lessons learned, and featured work currently taking place in California Office to Reform Education (CORE) participating districts to develop and pilot classroom-level assessment modules. Reflections on the experience of developing and using the assessment modules were shared by teachers from CORE schools.
