Shifting the from high stakes, one-size-fits-all testing to meaningful, real-time assessment is changing classrooms across NH.
New Hampshire is answering the call for more relevant assessments and less “teaching to the test” with its locally-developed performance assessment program.
The Performance Assessment of Competency Education (PACE) is a first-of-its-kind pilot that replaces standardized tests with personalized, authentic assessments developed by New Hampshire teachers.
These assessments are designed to support deeper learning and to be more integrated into students’ day-to-day work than current standardized tests. Meaningful assessment is a key part of a strategy to ensure students are getting the most out of their education.
