Test Ranking Not Correlated to US Economic Performance

Hello colleagues, I found the recent ASCD’s Policy Points publication http://www.ascd.org/ASCD/pdf/siteASCD/publications/policypoints/Test-Scores-Economic-Performance-Aug-14.pdf to be interesting.

The "So What" of PIAAC for Professional Development

Dear Professional Development Colleagues,

I’d like to follow up to the recent events that have taken place with respect to the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (“PIAAC”).

Thank you to all who joined the March 13 webinar, “Time to Reskill: A Practitioner Engagement Event” and to those who joined us at the COABE  PAACE 2014 Conference during the March 18 events with Assistant Secretary Brenda Dann Messier: her keynote and the Tweet Up that followed!

The PIAAC Data
