Virtual Schools: Assessing Progress and Accountability: Final Report of Study Findings - In assessing progress and accountability in virtual schools, follow the same protocol for all schools: focus on outcomes and track student growth throughout the year. Because students may be highly mobile, use on-demand assessments, and because they may be overage and undercredited, create accountability systems that are rigorous but sensible. Make sure student data can be portable from school to school and ramp up positive and negative consequences attached to performance. (Gillian Locke et al., National Charter School Resource Center, February 2014)...
