Race to Top Assessment Plans: A Graphic Version

Those of you who have slogged through our coverage of the Race to the Top assessment competition (story here, blog items here and here, for instance) know that those proposals are pretty hefty documents. So it's cool that the folks at the Center for K-12 Assessment and Performance Management decided to create graphic depictions of those plans.

The Center, created last year and funded by the Educational Testing Service, designed graphics for the proposals submitted by the two consortia of states that are competing for the $320 million to design comprehensive assessment systems. The two consortia have reviewed and approved the graphics as accurate representations of their plans. You can see them on the home page of the Center's website. (Technical note: You might want to use Internet Explorer. The links to the graphics don't work well with some versions of Mozilla Firefox.)

The center is also working on a graphic depiction of the plans submitted by a third consortium, which is applying for $30 million in Race to the Top money to design a high school assessment system. That graphic should be released soon.
