Has not received the same attention as the state competition or i3, but keep an eye on the Race to the Top assessment competition…could be good for business for a guy like Rick Hess if he hasn’t worn himself out making noise about the state competition.

The criteria are good and the need enormous. It’s just going to be a tough process to manage from now through implementation.
In the ill-fated George Miller No Child Left Behind reauthorization proposal there was a small assessment innovation pilot. This is a much more ambitious idea.
