Center on Standards and Assessment Implementation
The Center on Standards and Assessment Implementation (CSAI) provides state education agencies (SEAs) and Regional Comprehensive Centers (RCCs) with research support, technical assistance, tools, and other resources to help inform decisions about standards, assessment, and accountability.

- Increasing the capacity of the RCCs to meet the technical assistance and implementation needs of states around standards, assessment, and accountability.
- Capitalizing on available technology and media to promote engagement, effectiveness, and efficiency in the application of research and resources to expand the reach of CSAI.
