States Try Harder, But Gaps Persist: High School Exit Exams 2005


This is the fourth annual report on state exit exams produced by the Center on Education Policy, an independent advocate for public education in Washington, D.C. It is a product of the Center's comprehensive multi-year study of exit exams and is based on information we collected from 25 states with current or planned exit exams, on our own research, and on our review of other major research in this field. The report aims to be a comprehensive review of the status, characteristics, and effects of exit exams. It emphasizes developments that have occurred and research findings that have been released or publicized since the Center's August 2004 report, State High School Exit Exams: A Maturing Reform.
