Ann Duffett, an author of the study, said parents have a different perspective from policy-makers.

Click on Judicial Branch and then Indiana Court of Appeals. 2.) ******** OHIO REVAMPS STATE TESTS: ALIGNS WITH STANDARDS (Goal Three: Student Achievement and Citizenship) A new Ohio state law overhauls the state's proficiency tests by aligning them with academic standards (Rubin, EDUCATION DAILY, 6/15). The law also limits the tests' use in determining whether students will be promoted to the next grade or earn a high school diploma. The new law is based on recommendations developed by Governor Bob Taft's Commission for Student Success. Last year, the Commission reported that the Ohio tests were "rushed into place before the academic standards they were meant to measure had taken hold," reports the paper.
