Document Number: 5151

Standards and Assessments Peer Review Guidance: Information and Examples for Meeting Requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 - The goals of this document are to: (1) inform states about what would be useful evidence to demonstrate that they have met NCLB standards and assessments requirements; and (2) guide teams of peer reviewers who will examine the evidence submitted by states and advise the Department as to whether a state has met the requirements. This guidance is designed to help states develop comprehensive assessment systems that provide information for holding districts and schools accountable for student achievement against state standards. This document addresses each requirement separately, but cautions reviewers and states that the requirements are interrelated and that decisions about whether a state has met the requirements will be based on a comprehensive examination of the evidence submitted.
