Measuring what students know and can do is an essential part of teaching. The Assessment Design Toolkit includes v​ideos and supplemental materials to help teachers write and select well-designed assessments.   The toolkit includes 13 "modules: divided into four components: (1) key concepts, (2) five elements of assessment design, (3) writing and selecting assessments and (4) reflecting on assessment design. Though the primary audience is teachers and principals, district and State leaders can use the Toolkit to design professional development opportunities.
