Adding Value to the Mathematics and Science Partnership Evaluations


SUMMARY

Webb, N. L. (2002). An analysis of the alignment between mathematics standards and assessments for three states. A paper presented at the American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting, New Orleans, LA.   

This paper is a report of a study of alignment analysis used to measure standards and assessments in three states.  Alignment is defined, and the process used for completing the analysis is described.  Key issues discussed include findings that assessment items corresponded to more than one objective, and that assessments only addressed one part of a set of standards. The paper also finds that no state managed to meet all four criteria used for analysis.
