Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

The SAT and NCLB

Schools:

Under the No Child Left Behind Act, a state may theoretically select any test it chooses as long as that test measures the specific learning standards set forth by that state. However, Maine now has 20 days to rebut the claims that Maine’s assessment system, particularly its use of the SAT for eleventh graders, does not measure student achievement of the Maine Learning Results.

You mean the SAT doesn’t measure student achievement? It’s amazing what control you get for paying for ten percent of the budget.
