No Child Left Behind Act: Enhancements in the Department of Educationís Review Process Could Improve State Academic Assessments
Cornelia M. Ashby (au)
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLBA) requires states to develop high-quality academic assessments aligned with state academic standards. The Dept. of Education (DoE) has provided states with about $400 million for NCLBA assessment implementation every year since 2002. This report examined: (1) changes in reported state expenditures on assessments, and how states have spent funds; (2) factors states have considered in making decisions about question (item) type and assessment content; (3) challenges states have faced in ensuring that their assessments are valid and reliable; and (4) the extent to which DoE has supported state efforts to comply with assessment requirements. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.
