Marzano, Robert J.
State-level policymakers, local-level administrators, and teachers alike are interested in how standards actually apply to classroom learning. This paper presents answers to questions that policymakers and educators should consider before implementing standards-based education at the local level. The following questions help sort through the practical issues of standards-based education: (1) From which sources should the standards be derived? (2) Who will set the standards? (3) What types of standards shall be written? (4) In what format should the standards be written? (5) At what levels will benchmarks be written? (6) How should benchmarks and standards be assessed? (7) How will student progress be reported? and (8) For what shall students be held accountable? (LMI)
