Civic Education in the States: Standards and Assessments in Civics across the Nation.
Llosa, Alicia C.
This report updates preliminary information from a 1998-1999 report, "The Civic Education of American Youth: From State Policies to School District Practices," relating to civics standards and assessments. The report states that the information found on its tables and charts was obtained from the Internet and from telephone interviews with specialists in state departments of education. Some of the data contradict information found in the earlier report. The report identifies which states have: (1) implementation dates of state standards with civic content; (2) presentation of civics content in state standards; (3) district requirements for implementation of standards; (4) existence and arrangement of testing of civics topics; and (5) state certification requirements to teach civics topics. The report provides a basic summary of civic standards and assessments for each state. (BT)
