In late August, the U.S. Department of Education is expected to announce whether it has selected one winner or two to receive the $10.7 million in funds it is providing to create English-language-proficiency tests for the states’ common-core academic standards. California is leading one of the two consortia of states that applied. Wisconsin is leading the other.
A reader’s inquiry today caused me to realize that we had failed to provide links to the summaries of the applications submitted by those states to develop the tests that I described in an article published by Education Week earlier this month.
