Chris first joined CCSSO in 2008 as part of the standards program.

Chris has an extensive background in assessment and accountability work. From 2005-2008, he held multiple positions at Harcourt, all focused on the advancement and improvement of assessments. Specifically, he led the development and deployment of a teacher-centered online portal focused on assessment education.
Before joining Harcourt, Chris served as the Director of Test Design and Implementation at the Oregon Department of Education from 2003-2005. While there, he led the statewide implementation of Oregon's online assessment.
