This guide from Pearson Education, Inc. discusses the use of online assessments as a way to achieve “Next Generation” assessments. The author provides a five-step roadmap for implementing online assessments: 1) conduct a needs analysis; 2) develop a realistic transition strategy and plan; 3) ensure interoperability; 4) communicate proactively; and 5) anticipate ongoing change. This resource also includes three case studies of states that have transitioned to online assessments (Virginia, Mississippi, and North Carolina).
