Patelis, Thanos
College Board, Slides presented at at the Annual Meeting of the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) (New Orleans, LA, Apr 10, 2011)
In an effort to ensure fair preparation and selection of high school applicants to college, a committee of university and secondary school leaders after significant discussion and dialogue organized in 1900 the College Entrance Examination Board, known today as simply the College Board. The presentation will highlight the topics of this discussion and dialogue that led to the formation of this organization highlighting the issues and context that facilitated its formation. The presentation will also attempt to show how education is faced with very similar issues with the Common Core Standards and the formation of the consortia to develop assessments. The intention of the presentation is not to offer a full history and evolution of the College Board, but to offer a perspective on how the context seen in history seems to repeat itself. The presenter will comment on what can be learned from the formation for the College Board in the context of today's issues.
