Report of the Consensus Planning Project.
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
This third report of the National Assessment Planning Project concentrates on the consensus planning process used in the project. The project is an outgrowth of National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) program expansion, whose original task was to produce state-by-state comparisons of student achievement. The report is organized in four sections, preceded by an introduction. The first section provides background information on the NAEP and on the National Assessment Planning Project itself. The second section is a discussion of how the demands placed upon the planning of the assessment shift as the project changes to a state-by-state program from a national program. The third section describes the consensus planning procedures used in the project. Finally, the fourth section presents recommendations, observations, and lessons learned from the project. (JAM)
