Webinar: Exploring the ACT

Wednesday, September 7, Opportunities Under ESSA: Exploring the ACT, a NASBE webinar from 3 to 4 PM EDT

Over the next several months, states will be making major decisions about their state assessment system. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) gives states important flexibility in how and when to assess students, and which types of tests to use. In 31 states, state boards of education have the sole authority to make these calls. In more than half of all states, the state board is a key player.

Join NASBE as we continue our series of webinars on assessments with Scott Montgomery, ACT's senior vice president of public affairs. He will discuss what opportunities exist under ESSA to ensure that students, parents, and educators are focused on students' progress toward readiness for college and career and how using ACT solutions statewide can help states maintain that focus. Montgomery will also discuss ACT options available to low-income students.
