Nevada State and District Assessment Focus Groups Results – Executive Summary
WestEd worked with the Nevada Department of Education to develop a review of state- and district-administered assessments. This work was conducted to review the efficacy of assessment systems at both the state and local levels. The review consisted of:
- Conducting an inventory of district-administered assessments;
- Survey of district test directors and charter school representatives; and
- Stakeholder focus groups.
Stakeholder focus groups were held to collect feedback and insights from district test directors, district and building administrators, teachers, union representatives, school board members, parents, and community members. This summary presents a high-level overview of these focus groups and major findings from stakeholder responses.
