Health, Physical Education, Music and Art are areas of study that are often not considered “core” K-12 subjects. At AIR, we disagree. So, we did something about it. Introducing Learning Point OnCore™–a new assessment that measures these subjects. In this session we will discuss how these new assessments will be delivered, demonstrate sample items from each subject area, and discuss the benefits of participation in the field test of these items this spring.
