Who We Are
The Michigan Assessment Consortium (MAC) is a professional association of educators who believe quality education depends on accurate, balanced, and meaningful assessment. A nonpartisan and nonprofit organization, the MAC provides leadership and services to advance high-quality balanced assessment practices and systems.
Why we do this work
All children deserve a quality education that prepares them for success. Quality education depends on the alignment of curriculum, instruction, and balanced, meaningful assessment that advances as well as verifies learning. Educators must be assessment literate to improve educational results. The MAC works to encourage and support schools in:
- Adopting standards and educator curriculum for assessment literacy
- Improving assessment literacy and skill among educators
- Implementing formative assessment practices to balance assessment
- Embracing assessment as a positive tool to guide teaching and learning.
