LPA/NCREL contributions on value-added analysis

I cited RAND's work on value added analysis last month. Another group that is looking at both the technical and policy implications of doing rigorous evaluation of student learning is NCREL/Learning Point Associates (aka Castor & Pollux of education services in the Midwest).

Also see volume 16 of their policy issues publication for more on state-level educational data systems. This is particularly interesting because it outlines the information needs of different groups across the educational system - from state policy makers to parents and community members.
