From Politics to Policy: A Case Study in Educational Reform

Synopsis

This collection of essays is a case study of a major educational reform enacted in Texas in 1987: an effort to test all entering college students to gauge their basic skills. It chronicles how legislators, staff and educators designed the test, program, and necessary policies to support the reform. This book presents a model for other states to emulate, and is valuable to students and teachers of education, policy analysis and psychometric testing, as well as to agencies and legislators involved in state-level educational reform.
