The Council for Economic Education has a leading reputation for designing high-quality resources to facilitate instruction and assessment. The Online Assessment Center (OAC), builds further upon this record to provide a free service where teachers can securely administer assessments, gain real-time data, and measure student knowledge and understanding of economic and personal finance concepts. With this service, teachers can analyze the efficacy of their instruction and modify their approach.
The Online Assessment Center will enable teachers to:
- Administer tests online
- Analyze student and class performance by test
- Analyze student and class performance by item
- Track student and class progress over the course of a school year
- Identify how students and classes perform against standards and benchmarks
- Create custom reports
The new Online Assessment Center was developed in partnership with and as the founding sponsor, PwC.
The Online Assessment Center offers up the entirety of CEE’s assessment library to teachers. Assessments in Economics and Personal Finance at the Upper Elementary, Middle School, High School and University levels are available.
The Online Assessment Center also features financial literacy assessments tied to PwC’s Earn Your Future curricula. With a stated commitment to helping enhance the financial capability of youth and promote prosperity, PwC launched Earn Your Future… a $160 million, multi-year investment centered on two goals: helping students develop critical financial skills and providing educators with the resources and training to teach those skills. PwC’s Earn Your Future curricula are composed of easy-to-follow lesson plans accompanied by interactive handouts. The curricula is free and available to download for easy access to financial literacy education. There are 30 financial literacy modules spanning grades 3 through 12 and that cover Saving & Investing, Career Exploration, and Planning & Money Management topics.
