Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation requires that in grade K-3 that a research based assessment be adopted to assess students' math and reading skills. It also requires that the STate Board of Education direct its existing assessment workgroup to prusue "maximum flexibility" for state and local assessments for grades 9-12.
