The Standards Movement and the Emperor's New Clothes.
Popham, W. James
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n590 p21-25 Sep 1997

There is really no difference between instructional objectives and content standards. Other perils of content standards include inadequate descriptive vigor, overwhelming numbers, and absence of appropriate assessments and scoring rubrics. (MLH)
