    Building a Stronger Digital Link Between Learning and Assessment
    Educators across the country are integrating digital tools into classrooms to build stronger links between instruction and assessment. The new tools are offering up real-time feedback on what children know, quick access to an array of tailored instructional materials, and important data for teachers to use to improve their own approaches-all in an effort to do a better job personalizing learning in ways that address students' individual strengths and weaknesses. This push to use digital tools for more customized assessment approaches is just beginning in most districts, prompting high hopes from educators, but concerns from critics that some of the tools are poorly designed. Our experts will address the promise and perils of this trend.
