This report of the Committee on Student Learning to the 73rd Texas Legislature addresses committee structure and membership, the charges to the committee as established in House Bill 2885, and the committee's key actions during its first year. The committee focused on receiving research and discussing issues related to outcomes-driven education, essential skills and knowledge, student assessment, successful practices, and current educational policies and programs in Texas. The group also took action in the following areas: (1) recommendation to the State Board of Education of a transitional student assessment plan through 1994-95; (2) adoption of a vision of education that focuses on developmentally appropriate instruction and outcomes-driven curriculum and pedagogy; (3) appointment of a Technical Advisory Committee on Assessment and preparations for one on Developmentally Appropriate Instruction; (4) development of a public process to derive global outcome statements for high school graduates; (5) development of essential content knowledge and skills for all students; and (6) emphasis on group process, critical thinking, and problem solving across the curriculum. Four appendices comprising the greater part of this document contain agendas and minutes of committee meetings, key research documents, a student assessment transition plan, and a list of Technical Advisory Committee members. A civil rights compliance statement is included. (LMI)
