  • Introduction
  • Surveys of State Assessment Programs
  • Statistical Compendia
    Most states have implemented statewide testing programs for K-12 student achievement (48, according to the most recent survey by Education Week ) as the primary means of accountability to the public.
    State testing programs vary in terms of grades required to participate in the test administration, content, and format of the tests. Some states use well-known standardized tests that are purchased directly from test publishers; some state education agencies develop their tests internally in order to match the curriculum, whereas others may contract with outside vendors to do so.

The time for citizens to take action to help safeguard past environmental achievements and to continue improvements in natural resource protection has arrived. Mass Audubon is issuing this call to action to encourage you to join us in our campaign to defend the environmental budget at the Massachusetts State House. The Commonwealth is in the midst of its worst fiscal crisis in more than half a century. But within the parameters of necessary fiscal discipline, we can and must continue to make important progress in environmental protection. Less than one-percent of the state budget is devoted to environmental programs. Massachusetts ranks 45th among states in terms of the portion of the budget spent on natural resources. Further budget cuts will cause real harm to already impoverished programs, threatening to undermine the significant achievements the Commonwealth has made in protecting our quality of life for residents, businesses, and tourists. The passage of the Holland amendment, as well as the restriction on providing new revenue sources, requires conservation advocates to put up a strong defense against clear-cutting of funds for environmental programs. Mass Audubon needs your help to urge legislators to hold the line on the environmental budget for fiscal year 2004.

Facts In Action Home Page One Making it Count In Brief ... About the Early Education Clearinghouse Page One: Research and Data Shapes Early Education Policy What is the state of child care in Massachusetts? Where do you go to find out? This year the answer is not the usual response of "we don’t know." Several recent reports and initiatives are highlighting research that answers questions about capacity, demand, quality, the child care workforce, and other aspects of the early education system. Two of the most visible reports come from the agencies that administer subsidy programs on the state level – the Department of Education and the Office of Child Care Services. In April 2001, the Department of Education released its most recent edition of Future Trends – a collection of research and data that takes a hard look at the state of early education and care throughout the Commonwealth. The report, which relies jointly on data collected by the Department of Education as well as by the Office of Child Care Services and other sources, identifies several challenges to the Massachusetts early education and care system, including:

Massachusetts enjoys a wealth of information resources, partly because of the contributions of the state's prominent higher education community. The state is still developing a comprehensive, inclusive structure, however. In 1994 the state's first Chief Information Officer was appointed by the governor to oversee the state's primary data center, network operations, and annual $300 million investment in information technology and telecommunications.
1995 HB 5190 provides for a bond issue of approximately $53 million to fund the design, acquisition, and upgrading of major computer systems. The main purchase will be a state-of-the-art computer system for the Department of Social Services that will improve child support collection, matching of families with children waiting to be adopted, and case tracking within the Department. More than half the money spent on this system will be eligible for federal reimbursement. $1.4 million may be spent on integrating the state's various information systems, and $3 million on the Massachusetts Access to Government Network (MAGNET).
