A perspective of state assessment, state goal-setting, and state standards adoption is presented. Relationships among these three concepts are noted and the relationship of all three to a system orientation is explored. The recent history of national and state assessment is documented. Attention is given in this historical overview to the manner in which some states have treated such issues as the relationship of state goals to assessment efforts, the development of performance objectives, and the selection of instrumentation. Particular attention is devoted to a review of the last three years of state assessment in Wisconsin. In the final section of the paper four alternative futures for state assessment in Wisconsin are presented, along with the description of the climate most likely to be conducive to an effective assessment program.
