For the past five years we have been collaborating with the BEA Assessment Boot Camp to bring you the July Assessment Issue. It seems we never run out of things to talk about when it comes to assessment…and that’s a good thing! This issue continues that tradition with a special focus on the role of data collection and analysis in the assessment process.
