Resources on the Every Student Succeeds Act





Innovative Assessment Pilot


The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) created an Innovative Assessment Pilot and the much anticipated application was released last week by the United States Department of Education (USED). States can now apply for new flexibility they’ve been seeking to create innovative, next generation models of accountability and systems of assessments (with a smaller subset of districts in the state) since the passage of ESSA in 2015.


On January 3, the U.S. Department of Education released a Federal Register official notice inviting applications from states for the Innovative Accountability and Assessment Demonstration Authority. This is the “Innovative Assessment Pilot” and it is also a new opportunity in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for states to pilot new types of assessments.


The Department is trying to get a sense of which states are interested in applying to the pilot. As such, states are encouraged to submit an optional “intent to apply” by February 2, 2018. States can still apply to the pilot without providing this notification. Final applications will be due to the Department of Education by April 2, 2018.
