MCAS Assessment Development Committee (ADC) and Bias and Sensitivity Committee Recruitment

  • Friday, October 05, 2018

"The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is seeking educators to serve as members of the MCAS Assessment Development Committees in English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and the Bias and Sensitivity Committees. This is a rewarding professional development opportunity for educators who are interested in learning about large-scale, standards-based assessment. Committee members are directly involved in assisting the Department with the process of developing MCAS test items. DESE is looking to select from a diverse pool of candidates. We strongly encourage educators who have diverse backgrounds and who teach groups of diverse students to apply. Educators who previously served or who currently serve as ADC members may reapply.


For the ELA, mathematics, and science ADCs, we are looking for candidates with content expertise, familiarity with the Massachusetts curriculum frameworks, and teaching experience in the grade and subject matter indicated on the application.


For the Bias and Sensitivity Committees, we are looking for candidates with experience and understanding of bias and sensitivity issues, especially as they relate to K-12 education, familiarity with the Massachusetts curriculum framework, and experience in the K-12 education environment."
