Impact of State and Federal Student Assessment Legislation on Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Learning: The Perspectives from California, Colorado, Connecticut and Illinois School Districts.
Yakimowski, Mary; And Others
The goal of this paper, and the symposium it represents, is to provide an examination of the perspectives of district personnel from four diverse states. The papers present the current status of legislated student assessment programs in California, Colorado, Connecticut, and Illinois. Similarities and differences in implementation methodology are discussed. Results are presented from an interstate survey of district test directors relative to assessment trends and the impact of the state programs. The current status of plans relative to the evaluation of programs funded by Title 1 is reviewed. The following chapters are included: (1) "The California Perspective" (Mardel R. Kolls); (2) "The Colorado Perspective" (Kevin Matter); (3) "The Connecticut Perspective" (Mary E. Yakimowski); and (4) "The Illinois Perspective" (Carole Perlman). Survey results represented about 35% of the student enrollment in California (84 school districts), over 53% of students in Colorado (55 districts), 50.1% of Connecticut students (104 districts), and 59 districts in Illinois. An appendix contains the survey text. (SLD)
