Ontogenetic Development of Accountability: The Transition from Indices to Domains

  • Provided twice yearly at no registration cost to current TASA Accountability Forum subscribers, TASA Accountability Forum seminars feature invited speakers who provide valuable information related to the Texas public school accountability system.

    • John Tanner, founder of Test Sense, who will present on the pitfalls of many common approaches to assessment and accountability and how those might be overcome

    • TEA Deputy Commissioner Penny Schwinn and Director Shannon Housson, who will address Forum subscribers about TEA's ongoing efforts to improve state assessment delivery and implement state and federal accountability
    Participants will receive helpful resources and materials to take home, and have opportunities to network with their colleagues from across the state.
