Pick one of the issues discussed in this course, your readings, or one that has been discussed in your school that you feel is the most important or particularly needs to be addressed at your site.

You will construct a white paper that will be given to various stakeholders in your school community (teachers, parents, students, administrators, community members, etc.) that will assist in explaining this assessment issue from multiple perspectives. Include an explanation of the interrelationship between instruction, curriculum, and assessment at your site as to why this is an issue.

Conclude the paper with your recommendations relevant to your site. The recommendations can include, but not be limited to, best practices, suggestions to ensure appropriate assessments (this could be changes implementation), a discussion of how these assessments are congruent with instructional objectives, a guide for professional development, etc.
