Overview
The University of Kentucky’s National Center for Innovation in Education provides advice and support to states to make K-12 school systems more accountable for preparing students to succeed in college, career, and life. The center will continue to manage the Assessment for Learning Project, a national network of educators and leaders advancing local implementation of formative learning assessments. Together with the other educators from around the country, the project seeks to redefine assessment as not just a single test used for high-stakes decisions, but a system of assessments used to help states, districts, and schools implement, measure, and continuously improve deeper learning outcomes for students.

for support of the Center for Innovation in Education  
The University of Kentucky’s Center for Innovation in Education provides advice and support to help states make their K-12 school systems more accountable for preparing students to succeed in college, career, and life. The Center would work primarily with the Innovation Lab Network—a nine-state consortium hosted by the Council of Chief State School Officers—to help states establish definitions of college- and career-readiness that reflect deeper learning knowledge, skills, and dispositions; adopt assessment systems that measure deeper learning outcomes; and revise state school accountability systems accordingly.
