Against a backdrop of the opportunities provided by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the challenges for education posed by the new federal administration, this issue of VUE proposes performance assessment as a personalized and rigorous alternative to standardized testing. Performance assessment provides an opportunity for educators in public schools and districts to more equitably meet the needs of students through the use of more relevant, engaging curriculum and instruction that prepares students for complex problem-solving and collaboration.
