(DC) Are State Proficiency Standards Falling?
May 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
Since 2005, Education Next has evaluated the rigor of state proficiency standards, assigning grades to all the states on an A-to-F scale. Good grades suggest that states are setting a high proficiency bar—that students must perform at a high level to be deemed proficient in a given subject at their grade level. In the last analysis using 2015 data, Education Next found a dramatic rise in state standards. But what has happened since the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act in 2015? Have state standards begun to fall?
Join us on May 22 in Washington, D.C., for a release-day event exploring the latest findings. Follow the discussion on Twitter at #EdNextStandards.
