High-stakes testing in key subject areas has become a significant factor in determining teacher and school quality and student achievement. Increasingly, statewide test results have become the basis for funding and policy decisions and for student advancement or graduation. But how effective are these tests at evaluating what students really know?
The Center for Curriculum Materials in Science (CCMS) is a partnership of AAAS, Michigan State University, Northwestern University, and the University of Michigan. It is focused on the analysis, design, and use of science curriculum materials.
This five-year study funded by the Interagency Education Research Initiative (IERI) Project 2061 is helping to identify factors that improve student learning in middle grades mathematics.
