District Committee on Assessments

In spring 2017, the Maryland General Assembly passed the More Learning, Less Testing Act of 2017, setting  a  limit  on  the  amount  of  time  that  may  be  devoted  to  locally  mandated  assessment. The legislation compels school districts to ensure that all locally mandated assessments are clear in their purpose, time limited, worth taking, high quality, and tied to improved student learning.

For the full scope of the committee work and to see the list of committee appointees, read the Feb. 13, 2018 memorandum
