Thanks for this link, Sheryl, and for this information about the
experience other states are having with certain types of standardized testing. It is helpful for me to learn this information. I know that you are a constituent of mine who has studied this topic extensively, so I respect your concerns. I will be checking with the Utah State Office of Education and State School Board to try to determine how Utah's new tests (which I understand are not part of a consortium) compare with the problems other states are experiencing. I will let you know what I find out. Thanks again. Kraig Powell On 1/5/14 8:44 PM, "Sheryl Nelson"
