ABSTRACT
The most recent wave of education reform is the standards, assessment and accountability movement in the U.S. as of October 2003. The initial steps of this reform established national content standards in each of the content areas of the school program. The national standards define what students should know and be able to do in each content area and have been used by many states and districts either directly or to guide the development of state content standards. National content standards have created a shared vision of the role of each content area among professionals and the public. The development of standards has been followed by an increased emphasis on measuring the extent to which students meet the standards and holding teachers and schools responsible for students meeting those standards. The establishment of content standards has also necessitated new strategies for examining and assessing educational outcomes.
