The Center on Standards and Assessment Implementation (CSAI)—Who We Are and What We Do

CSAI, managed by WestEd and the Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, & Student Testing (CRESST), is one of seven content centers that provide research-based technical assistance and support to 15 Regional Comprehensive Centers (RCCs), and to the states that they serve, around each of the following areas: building state capacity and productivity; college and career readiness and success; enhancing early learning outcomes; great teachers and leaders; innovations in learning; school turnaround; and standards and assessment implementation.

As a content center, CSAI is committed to providing high-quality technical assistance, research support, tools, and other resources to RCCs and to state education agencies (SEAs) to help inform decisions about standards, assessment, and accountability.

This resource features projects and services that CSAI is currently engaging in, as well as resources and products developed by CSAI. This resource also highlights services related to the Every Student Succeeds Act that CSAI can provide.
