This study investigated Florida science educators' perceptions of the functionality and value of the state Item Bank and Test Platform. Evidence from educator surveys, along with anecdotal evidence from meeting notes, shows a shift in educators' perceptions from little to no familiarity with the Item Bank and Test Platform to a favorable perception of its value as an accountability tool for the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. The successful use and sustainability of the Item Bank and Test Platform as a valid and reliable measure of student achievement depends on maximizing its functionality and value to teachers.
