Portland, Ore., won't comply with state rules calling for districts to set goals in three subject areas as part of a switch to a new test.

Portland is the first district in the state to ignore part of the "achievement compacts" the state requires.

District officials argue that state officials haven't said what the passing grades will be for the new tests, so it's impossible to set goals.
