Short Description: EDUCATION-TECH
Sen. David Koehler
| 4/7/2017||Senate||Rule 3-9(a) / Re-referred to Assignments|
Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Construction Law. Makes a technical change in a Section concerning carry over projects.
Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the School Code. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, requires the State Board of Education to annually assess all students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 to meet the goals and standards of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act and related rules (instead of requiring the State Board to annually assess all students enrolled in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and mathematics). Requires the State Board (i) to implement a balanced assessment system of diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments that provide information useful to teachers for the purpose of guiding discussion and instruction in a timely manner; (ii) to assess all students with multiple, coordinated, coherent, and valid measures with a goal of increasing the amount and impact of instructional time and maximizing the measurement of student learning; and (iii) to take advantage of the Every Student Succeeds Act's support for assessments both within and outside of grade level, measures of academic growth irrespective of grade level that are measured against a stable, grade-independent scale, and other non-academic measures, such as graduation rates and student engagement. Requires the assessment system to provide grade-level proficiency scores for accountability purposes, as well as progress, instructional information, and growth for each student, and to include evidence that is instructionally relevant, student-centered, and timely delivered so that it helps educators and policy makers measure and improve the effectiveness of the educational system against accountability expectations. Effective immediately.
