eLearn Institute created the Online Assessment Planning Tool as a companion resource for implementing the recommendations of the Online Assessment: From Readiness to Opportunity report — a resource developed with Education Networks of America (ENA) in alliance with CoSN: (the Consortium for School Networking), AASA (The School Superintendents Association), and NSBA (the National School Boards Association).
The Tool has four main resources:
1. Self-Reporting Survey on eight key elements of online assessment readiness:
2. Survey Results that provide a readiness mapping for key elements of building an effective online assessment program.
3. Readiness Level Descriptions of the progressive stages of evolving practices: from early awareness of online assessment options, through selective adaptation of assessment processes, to broader transformations of teaching and learning.
4. Planning Worksheets designed to assist districts and schools in planning actions steps that will move them from their current stage of readiness to their next targeted level of preparation and practice.
We hope you will find these resources useful as you transform you teaching and learning environments. If you have any questions or would like extra support, please contact us at eLearn Institute.
CoSN (The Consortium for School Networking), in partnership with AASA (The School Superintendents Association) and NSBA (The National School Boards Association), would like to thank the Learning First Alliance for their generous support of this project.

The Online Assessment Planning Tool is part of a system of strategy and implementation resources and consulting services created and offered by the eLearn Institute in partnership with Eduvate (http://eduvate.org) to assist schools and districts in supporting effective use of online assessments.
