Legislation by the States: Accountability and Assessment in Education. Report No. 2 (Updated). Bulletin No. 6210.
The fourth revision of this report, prepared under the sponsorship of the Cooperative Accountability Project (CAP), contains seven state accountability statutes enacted in 1975, as well as two other statutes enacted in 1972 and 1973. The contents of the nine laws consist of directives and recommendations for comprehensive planning, evaluation of programs, assessment of student performance, state and local district educational goals and performance objectives, management information systems, teaching competencies and inservice teacher education programs, and school accreditation based on performance. Table 1 presents the status of accountability legislation in November 1975, by listing the states that have enacted laws and those that have not. A comulative graph indicates the increasing number of states that have enacted such legislation during the past ten years. Table 2 indicates what kinds of programs associated with methods for attaining accountability are being operated or piloted in the 50 states. Complete copies of all the accountability laws are in the appendix. (Author/MLF)
