Meeting people involved in the assessments

Program Coordinator Network meetings in Ohio on May 18th, 19th, and 27th. It’s fun to meet people involved in the assessments I work on face to face, and I love getting to talk about the work we do to make sure the results we provide are high quality and reliable so the decision made are valid.
