The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) recently issued a set of principles for the new Common Core–aligned tests.
The Department (of Education) plans to use a peer-review process to ensure that the tests are high quality and aligned to tough standards.
"Done poorly, this peer-review process could have disastrous consequences, namely giving lots of state leaders reason to ask, “The feds have to approve our tests? Tell me again how this isn’t nationalization of K–12 schooling at work?”"
