And they're off - 2 states allowed to experiment with growth models

It seems that North Carolina and Tennessee will both be allowed to added growth models to their official NCLB compliance frameworks. It remains to be seen how this will actually play out. Tennessee will be using a proprietary model that has never had any rigorous external evaluation. North Carolina was just in the news this week for the major cost overruns and failures surrounding it's state-wide student data system.
