The Assessment Consortium program was eliminated through a mid-year cut of $350,000 to the FY 2017 budget. Created in the FY 2017 budget, the Assessment Consortium program supports the development of alternative assessments of student educational performance that include measures beyond standardized tests, such as engagement in school and the ability to solve complex real world problems.

The Assessment Consortium program supports the development of alternative and more holistic measures for student and school performance. This will be undertaken as a three year pilot program by a group called the Massachusetts Consortium for Innovative Education Assessment in partnership with the Center for Collaborative Education in Boston. The consortium is made up of superintendents and teachers union leaders from a handful of cities across the state including Attleboro, Boston, Bourne, Framingham, and Ludlow. The Assessment Consortium program will provide reports to the Legislature and Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education outlining recommendations based on findings from the pilot project.
