  • NATP helps states create assessment networks to connect district and campus testing professionals with each other as well as with key Education Agencies and vendor partners.  
  • These key partners include State Testing Directors, which means you can empower assessment staff as they work to identify best practices and share updates, resources, and materials.
  • The establishment of networks creates opportunities to collaborate and discuss how districts are each applying the many systems, rules, and changes that often overwhelm them.
  • Feedback on what is and what can be successful in their respective districts and states is critical to the assessment process.
  • This collaboration between districts and DOEs will support Education Agencies across the nation as they work to improve systems and process at the state and federal levels.
  • The NATP-Education Agency partnership will empower districts to inform decision making that will result in fair and sensible assessment policies.
  • Improved educational systems across the nation will be our greatest accomplishment!
  • Through coordination and collaboration, a NATP partnership helps us support the “boots on the ground.”
  • NATP is the most comprehensive national assessment partnership.
  • Through shared networks, resources, professional development opportunities and a vital partnership with state education agencies and assessment vendors, NATP strives to offer streamlining to frontline coordinators. 
  • As facilitators of organizational collaboration, the assessment governance of state testing directors can be deciphered and clarified throughout the year through meaningful exchanges.
  • Education Agencies will benefit from improved processes, while saving schools and districts time and effort that can be re-allocated to student instruction.  
  • Our nationwide vast support plans for testing professionals will largely enhance your assessment programs. 
  • We want DOEs and their assessment divisions to be a part of this experience as a key partner.
  • There is much we can learn and benefit from each other.  
  • NATP aims to bridge the gaps between ALL key partners: district, state, and vendors  in order to free the way for connection, communication, and collaboration. 
  • NATP aims to create the opportunity for key assessment players to attain a partnership that will support and empower front line testing professionals, while embedding related state and vendor efforts for reciprocal gain.  
  • We continue to believe that DOEs and their Assessment Divisions could help expedite and complete the triad of support that we have established.
  • We are extremely passionate about the work of our organization and are eager to line up service-oriented individuals and organizations to be part of this process. 
  • NATP has partnered with testing vendors and Department of Education Assessment Divisions to help promote the spirt of collaboration and process improvement.  Through committed partnerships, we can create opportunities for test coordinator input. 
  • As a result of direct frontline input, testing coordinators and those who provide their guidance, including State Testing Directors, will ensure policies and expectations are clear, well received, and result in optimal testing experience for students. 
  • Let’s connect to discuss a potential partnership and establish systems that will provide the very support systems and relief that is much needed on all sides. 
  • DOEs and NATP are in positions of high-potential assessment impact, which means nothing unless we seize the opportunity.  Let’s get to work!
