California is Only State Skipping Student Progress Survey*
Chase Niesner | November 20, 2013
A new survey shows how states are implementing data systems for evaluating students’ progress, but California, which has most public school students of any state, declined to participate this year.
Patricia de Cos, Deputy Executive Director of the California State Board of Education, told LA School Report that her office was simply unable to fill out the requisite forms before a deadline.
In 2011 and 2012, California received positive marks in four of the 10. One required the state to have an agency of data governance; another mandated that the data be made available on a public website. This year, Arkansas and Delaware were the first states to complete all ten steps.
