who says we won't teach to the test?

High-stakes testing is necessary to keep our math-based economy strong. For an example, look at how it's created work for Carnegie Learning, producers of a new WASL prep math curriculum.
Carnegie Learning, Inc., a leading publisher of math curricula for middle school, high school, and postsecondary students, today introduced Math Prep for the WASL, a new research-based course developed specifically to improve student performance on the 10th grade Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) state exit exam.

Math Prep for the WASL incorporates content from multiple Carnegie Learning math curricula including Bridge to Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. Math Prep for the WASL can be adapted for diverse implementations such as a full WASL-prep course, supplemental intervention program, or a diagnostic-prescriptive tool for identifying concepts and skills that require remediation. In addition to the Washington edition, Carnegie Learning Math Prep courses also include a National Edition and state editions customized for California, Florida, and Texas. Carnegie Learning releases additional Math Prep courses correlated to state-specific exams throughout the year.
Forget stem cell research or biofuels. The real way to boost American economic might is to develop non-stop assessment.
