Update:

  • At this time the Results Matter Part I review has been postponed until July 2020. Vendors have been notified and CDE is identifying a process to move forward.

Vendors: please read this page and the full application carefully as the instructions, process, and criteria have changed since the last review. 

 

Part I: Eligibility versus Part II: Assessment Review applications


This year’s application is divided into two phases: Part I: Eligibility and Part II: Assessment Review. Part I contains “required” criteria that any tool must meet in order to be considered for full program review according to “minimum” and “preferred” criteria. The application above covers Part I: Eligibility only. Part I of the Assessment Tool Review Submission will lead to the determination of eligibility to apply for Part II and, after completion of Part II, possible inclusion on the Results Matter assessment menu. In order to submit materials to the CDE to complete Part II and receive a full review of the assessment system, each vendor must establish that it meets the eligibility criteria outlined in this Part I: Eligibility submission form. Vendors are encouraged to read all criteria in the Scoring Rubric (Appendix B of Part I application) in order to assess whether tools are relevant for the overall application process. However, vendors should only submit materials relevant to the “Required” criteria for this Part I: Eligibility application. Note: Minimum and Preferred criteria are subject to change between now and the official opening of the Part II application period.
