Assessment Implementation and Evaluation

Assessment is a critical and necessary component of any education system, but not an end in itself. edCount's core belief is that an assessment's purpose must not be limited to obtaining a number or score. Rather, to be effective, an assessment must ultimately serve and support instruction. The assessment services we provide for state and local clients help them not only implement and improve assessment systems, but also to make decisions and interpretations in the context of a broader educational framework in which assessment is an important – but integrated – component.
