Join Chalkbeat Colorado as we explore Colorado’s assessment systems. Design your own segment of a test in a small group of fellow teachers and education professionals. After your brainstorm, compare notes with the information you receive from our panel of education and assessment experts who will explain the rollout of the new Social Studies and Science tests, and also the transition into PARCC.

When & Where
Chalkbeat is the nonprofit news organization covering the national effort to transform public education. We are mission-driven journalists who believe that an independent local press is vital to ensuring that education improves. We seek to provide deep local coverage of education policy and practice that informs decisions and actions, leading to better schools.
Chalkbeat was founded in 2013 as a merger of GothamSchools and EdNews Colorado, the award-winning news sites that are now known as Chalkbeat New York and Chalkbeat Colorado. While each local Chalkbeat bureau works together to sustain our operations, each bureau is editorially independent.
