New regulations set forth by the Bush administration’s No Child Left Behind Act have moved accountability to the forefront of every educator’s agenda. eSchool News Online’s latest Educational Resource Center, titled “Assessment & Achievement,” aims to help school leaders meet the challenge. With support from Kaplan Inc., this new online resource allows educators to learn how assessment is helping to advance education across the board. Decision-makers will find proven strategies to boost test scores, in-depth reports on how technology can help schools meet more stringent federal guidelines, and a number articles discussing current trends and changes in assessment and achievement. eSchool News and Kaplan also have scoured the web for the best information found elsewhere and have compiled a library of links to quality assessment and achievement content to help educators find what they need and find it fast. Having trouble coping with the demands of increased accountability? Kaplan offers suggestions and core insights on the best ways to lessen the burden.
