This is the fourth edition of the State Student Assessment Database. This document tabulates information about each state's assessment programs based on a survey mailed to state directors of assessment in October 1995 and completed by all 50 states by February 1996. The survey was divided into the following categories: (1) general concerns; (2) nontraditional assessments; (3) writing assessments; (4) curriculum frameworks and standards; (5) Title I assessment and evaluation plans; and (6) program components. The database provides a snapshot of state-mandated assessment programs, but does not provide information on whether state assessment systems are aligned with content standards. Each survey question resulted in the development of one or more data tables. For this reason, the survey is presented to guide the user in finding specific information. An appendix presents updated tables developed by the National Governors Association to supplement this report for the 1996 National Education Summit. (Contains 118 tables and 3 appendix tables.)
