New Hampshire is answering the call for more meaningful assessment metrics and less standardized testing 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 real, authentic assignments developed by New Hampshire teachers.
These assessments are designed to support deeper learning through competency education, 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.
