[BULK] - [AAACE-NLA] NIFL Assessment Discussion

I have three related topics I would like to see discussed: (1) How are the different states, and programs within those states, dealing with the challenges of complying with federal mandates on standardized assessment? (2) what changes are likely, in the short- and mid-term future, with mandated assessment rules and option? and (3) what are the problems AND solutions to the integration of mandated assessment to instruction?
