Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: January 5, 2015 01:27 PM
From: Senator James R. Brewster
To: All Senate members
Subject: Student Performance Advisory Commission
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce SB 823 of last session. This legislation would create a Student Performance Measurement Advisory Commission.

The Commission will make findings and recommendations to improve the measure of performance in the Commonwealth to more fairly and accurately measure the academic performance of students, schools, school districts and educators.

The 11-member Commission will review the following for their strengths and weaknesses: The PA System of School Assessment, The PA Alternate System of Assessment, The Keystone Exams, The PA Accountability System (including the PA Performance Index), and the PA Value Added Assessment System.

Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB355
