ab: Thirty school districts in California have decided that the best way to
counter the ill effects of mandatory high-stakes standardized testing
in mathematics is to join together and institute their own performance
assessments. The authors report that the districts participating in the
Mathematics Assessment Collaborative have seen improved mathematical
understanding on the part of both their students and their teachers.
