Two State Consortia Win Race to Top Assessment Grants

We told you we'd keep you updated on the Race to the Top Assessment winners, and here you are: news that the two consortia vying for money to design comprehensive K-12 assessments both got funded.

There was only one consortium going after money to design a system of high school tests, and that group didn't get funded.

We'll soon bring you news of Ed Secretary Arne Duncan's speech on this. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Here is Duncan's speech, as prepared for delivery.
