Missouri Performance Assessments
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Educational Testing Service (ETS) have partnered to create standards-based assessments for the state of Missouri. The assessments will demonstrate performance in content coursework and clinical experience at exit level for teachers, school/district leaders, school librarians and school counselors.
All assessments will contain a series of tasks requiring written commentary and submission of artifacts. A video submission will be required for one of the tasks.
