Promising practices, processes, and leadership strategies: Building quality local assessment

Patty K Roschewski, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


In 2000 Nebraska passed legislation requiring the assessment of student performance on content standards. School districts were required to develop local assessment systems to measure student performance on standards. This multiple case study examines the first year development of high quality assessment systems measuring reading standards in five school districts. The data collected from the districts represent four different approaches to local assessment. Each of the Four Cases varies in size and geographic location within the Nebraska. The data collected were analyzed using Knostner's “Factors in Managing Complex Change Chart” and result in a series of main themes that provide the basis for six recommendations of promising practices, processes and leadership strategies for building local assessment systems. ^
