"Content Standards" vs "Performance Standards"

Posted By: Dick Schutz on March 1, 2006
 
Which education agency specifies the standards begs the question. With ungrounded standards and loosely-linked relative measures, there is no way to determine whether performance is "high," "low", or "in between."

The fact that a small number of standardized tests are regarded as "aligning" with all state standards as achievement indicators is evidence that the Fed-State promulgation distinction is not a determining consideration.

The fact that the standards are ungrounded is a fundamental flaw in the "Standards Movement" of the last 15ish years. There is no indication in the review that is reflected in the book.
