Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.

-- Maria Montessori

Trends: Common Assessments For Common Standards

EdConnections Posted by Dan S. Martin
In an earlier set of posts (1,2,3,4) I highlighted the progress towards adoption of common standards for math and reading across our country.  As of a few weeks ago, 43 states had approved the common standards and 5 more are expected to.  There are only two maverick states regarding common standards--- Texas and Alaska.

Now that the common standards effort is so far along, attention has shifted to the common assessments that will test the common standards.  The web page below provides a bit more context and links to the two proposals being promoted

In part, the page reads:

"One report comes from the Aspen Institute, which also hosted a panel discussion about the proposals with representatives from each consortium (you can watch the video of that 90-minute presentation, too, if you wish.).

The other comes from the ETS' Center for K-12 Assessment & Performance, the same folks who have already produced graphic and Power-Point depictions of the two consortia's testing proposals. (All of these resources, along with the newest report, "Coming Together To Raise Achievement," are available at the Center's publications page.)"

Trends: Common-Standards

EdConnections Posted by Dan S. Martin
Well, common in most places.  When the Governors of our 50 states met a couple of years ago to discuss adopting common-standards across our country, all but Texas and Alaska expressed interest.  Now 43 states have adopted them.  More will likely follow.  Texas and Alaska...going rogue!
