A global pandemic has interrupted standards-based accountability systems, which were originally built as a path to higher and more equitable outcomes for students. But with the twin forces of COVID-19 and the national call to action on racial inequity, the question of how we should measure the impact of education systems on students, particular students of color and low-income students, is more urgent than ever.

How should statewide standards and annual testing move forward next year and beyond as tools for achievement, transparency, and equity? How well did accountability systems promote these ideals, particularly for underserved students, in the past? What can state and federal policymakers learn from critiques of standards-based accountability to inform a path forward in service of equity?  

Join a panel of prominent leaders to discuss the past two decades of successes and failures in the pursuit of ambitious educational outcomes and rigorous standards for all — and key ways leaders should make their testing and accountability systems resilient to changing circumstances on the ground.
