Center on Standards & Assessment Implementation CSAI logo

Educators often encounter a common set of questions when it comes to the purpose and intent of standards and assessment: Why is my child being tested? What exactly is formative assessment? What are the benefits of assessment?

The Center on Standards and Assessment Implementation (CSAI) helps educators promote greater understanding of how assessment positively impacts learning for all students. From resources for supporting American Indian/Alaska Native students to state guidance related to innovative assessments, CSAI is a leading thought partner shaping national strategies to improve outcomes and achievement.
