Seventy members of Colorado’s Content Collaboratives will meet this week in Denver to begin work to establish examples of student learning measures which could be used as evidence in determining the effectiveness of an educator.  The Content Collaboratives are a group of educators tasked with creating and disseminating standards-based assessment and instructional materials for use in the classroom. These groups are a key piece in determining how to measure non-state tested subject matter for use in the new educator evaluation system.   The Content Collaboratives and Colorado Department of Education, along with state and national experts, will establish examples of student learning measures within each content area. These will be piloted in select districts, undergo revision and then be disseminated to all districts. The National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment will facilitate and support the work and meetings of the Content Collaboratives. A technical steering committee will ensure the technical reliability of the identified assessments.
