Our New and Improved Website: The Dawn of a New Era at AAC

This past week our new AAC Website launched.  Now, you might be thinking: "Big deal...websites are created, updated or launched all the time!" and that claiming that this is the dawn of a new era might be a bit much.  Perhaps. But around the AAC offices, our new website has created quite a stir.  Here's the top 5 reasons why we're so excited about it:
Welcome to the NEW AAC Home Page 

1) It looks great!
2) It is WAY easier to navigate, search, and locate content. For example, we have incorporated a easy to use menu for searching assessment materials right on the main page.
3) Tabs and accordions provide you with an overview of resources at a glance, but keep you on the page while browsing.
4) Our extensive library of Performance Assessment tasks have been reformatted to make it easier for you to find just what you need to support student learning.
5) The "Hot Topics" menu contains research-based responses to current assessment topics of interest to system and school leaders, as well as teachers and parents.

Coincidentally, the launch of our new website corresponds with the first post on the new AAC blog. We've titled this blog: 'Everyday Assessment to Support Student Learning', because ultimately that is what we're all about, and it is our sincere hope that this blog will provide a venue for sharing best practices and ideas, as well as engaging in conversation with the broader assessment community. So welcome to our new blog! Welcome to our new website! And welcome to the dawn of a new era at AAC. We sincerely hope that you will journey with us as we explore Everyday Assessment to Support Student Learning!
