Read the entire blog post and join our conversation at Remediating Assessment.


Excerpt: A February 2 article in Education Week surveyed efforts in California, Oklahoma, and other states to gauge the opportunities for creative and innovative work.One of our main targets here at Remediating Assessment is pointing out the folly of efforts to standardize and measure “21st Century Skills.”So of course this caught our attention.


What might come of Oklahoma Gov. Mary Smith’s search for a “public measurement of the opportunities for our students to engage in innovative work” or California’s proposed Creativity and Innovative Education index?
