Statewide Academic Standards: Doing It Right. A Position Paper of the Association of California School Administrators. Special Report.
Association of California School Administrators.
The California Assessment of Academic Achievement Act of 1995 mandates the development and adoption of statewide academically rigorous content and performance standards in core curriculum areas. This brochure summarizes the findings of the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) standards task force. The brochure is organized around the following questions: (1) What must effective statewide standards look like? (2) What must be done to avoid the "reinvent-the-wheel" syndrome? (3) What must happen to guarantee a standards-based system? and (4) What questions must still be answered? A glossary, a list of task force members, and an appendix showing the status of academic standards-setting across the 50 states as of April 1995 are included. (LMI)
