Classroom Assessment Committee


Plan to attend the 5th NCME Special Conference on Classroom Assessment in person this year on September 19-20, 2024 at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, IL. The conference theme is “Reclaiming the Promise of Balanced Assessment Systems: Achieving Deeper Learning at Scale for Both Students and Adults.


    In 2016, the NCME President Mark Wilson initiated a task force focused on classroom assessment. This task force was initially led by Kristen Huff (Curriculum Associates) and Dale Whittington (Shaker Heights City School District).
