As the founder and principal consultant of Edstrom Educational Consulting, I have a decade of assessment experience garnered from work with individual classrooms, state accountability programs, and national shelf products. After graduating from Wellesley College, I was certified to teach in the public school systems in Needham, Massachusetts, South Brunswick, New Jersey and Glencoe, Illinois. As a consultant for ETS, I was trained by Grant Wiggins’s CLASS organization to author material for their Assessment Wizard program, a software program that assists teachers in developing authentic performance assessments. In 2002, I joined Riverside Publishing Company, where I oversaw the content development of high-stakes testing programs at all grade-levels and in all subject areas. Most notably, I worked closely with the Assistant Superintendent of Schools for Assessment and Arts Supervisor for the State of Washington in researching, developing, and implementing their Goal 2 authentic performance assessments in the areas of Art, Music, Drama and Dance, now being used across the state at the elementary, middle and high school grades.
I left Riverside Publishing to found Edstrom Educational Consulting in 2005. Through my leadership, EEC has grown a large client base that includes notable educational publishing divisions, including Riverside Publishing, Holt-McDougal, and CTB/McGraw-Hill. In my role as principal consultant,I have acted as an advisor in the best practices of assessment, as well as authored assessment materials of the highest quality with attention to specifications. I have instructed educators in both small and large-group settings with a focus on all aspects of assessment, from testing best practices, types of assessment and creation of rubrics.
