CRESST/UCLA Receives Hewlett Foundation Grant

UCLA’s National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST) has been selected to receive a $250,000 grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to evaluate the link between deeper student learning and two new assessments currently under development.  Two consortia, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), and the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium, are creating next-generation state assessment systems to measure the Common Core State Standards adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia.
