Pathways to New Accountability Through the  Student Succeeds Act

The two reports linked above were produced through a collaboration between the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education and the Learning Policy Institute. The first report presents case studies of the progress made by a cohort of geographically diverse states (51st State Working Group) in redesigning accountability strategies. This information was gathered through interviews, group meetings, webinars, and working papers published by the 51st State Working Group. The second report is a complementary report to the first. It explores the various indicators for progress that might be used in a multi-measure accountability system, in addition to the kinds of criteria that may be used for intervention.
