Standards, information, and the demand for student achievement

Frank Levy and Richard Murnane

Economic Policy Review, 1998, vol. 4, issue Mar, 117-124

Abstract: Higher student achievement, say the authors, has been severely hampered by a lack of good information comparing achievement levels with today's labor market requirements. They argue that by obtaining this information--in the form of academic standards and assessments--parents can more accurately evaluate the quality of their children's education.
