Opinion and Research

All of our activities support our mission of improving teaching and learning. In keeping with that mission, Measured Progress assessment experts contribute frequently to the body of knowledge about assessment and education. White papers and opinion pieces published by Measured Progress staff reflect a candid, independent look into the world of assessment and a steadfast commitment to have a positive impact on what goes on in the classroom.

We also make available our final reports from research grants that explore current issues in education and assessment. These reports contain information about specific research inquiries and do not necessarily reflect the views of the funding foundation.
