Thanks Abby. Super informative webinar. I learned a lot!Question: How much time (ballpark) does the thru testing take compared to traditional summative tests (in total as well as for each of the discrete pieces)? Given the blowback to the amount of time spent on high stakes tests, are folks concerned that innovative approaches could (eventually) require more time?
