Colorado High-Quality Assessment Content Validity Review Tool

This assessment review tool, developed by the Colorado Department of Education, is designed to help educators determine the validity and quality of potential assessments for measuring student academic growth. The tool reviews potential assessments based on: alignment to academic standards and grade level expectations, clear guidelines and criteria for scoring, the degree to which the assessment is fair and unbiased, and whether or not it increases opportunities to learn. The tool can be easily adapted for reviewing Career Technical Education (CTE) assessments in other states.
