Steve Lazar, our Dean of Academic Progress, testified before Congress this past Wednesday (1/21/2015) on “Fixing No Child Left Behind: Testing and Accountability.” The written testimony is here: Congressional Testimony.
Steve starts talking about Harvest halfway through and writes
The Senators seemed really interested in what we and the Consortium are doing around performance assessment, and there was a lot of enthusiasm for our benchmarks as well. The insanely hard work we’re all doing to get our students ready to be successful in high level work for Gateways and Symposiums now, and Capstones soon, is a model for the rest of the country.
