The New Standards Project, a partnership of states and cities producing national education standards and a system of assessments, last week named Sally Mentor as its deputy director.

Ms. Mentor, now the deputy superintendent of instruction for California, will run the day-to-day operation of the project beginning May 1. She was responsible for the development of California's curriculum frameworks and new assessment system.

Michael Casserly, a longtime official of the Council of the Great City Schools, has been named the group's executive director.

Mr. Casserly, 44, had been the association's interim director since January 1992. He previously had served as the associate director for legislation and research of the council, which represents many of the nation's largest urban school districts.
