The K–12 Center regularly convenes leading measurement experts and practitioners to help advance the state of knowledge and practice to create the "next generation" of comprehensive K–12 assessment systems. After each of these research meetings, we make available a variety of resources from the event, including agendas, summary reports, papers, videos, slides and more.
