Reading Roundup: Quality Assessments and More

Some thoughts worth a look this morning:

• A new report from the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy at Indiana University's School of Education raises flags about using the SAT and ACT to size up high school student achievement.

• An EdWeek commentary takes on some of the teaching complications prompted by the common standards' cross-disciplinary approach to English/language arts.

• Another EdWeek commentary writer urges readers to fine-tune their "crap detectors" as they absorb the many claims of new systems to assess student learning.
