The purpose of this report is to summarize the work that had been done prior to 2008 on develop­ing a set of standards for a good/valid accountability system. In addition, this paper describes procedures that states can use in developing a new accountability system or in evaluating a current one. The audience is intended to be state or district policymakers who are designing, redesigning, or reviewing their accountability systems. The overarching goal of this report is to answer the question "As states consider developing accountability plans separate from NCLB or as an enhancement to NCLB, what are the elements, standards, etc. of a good accountability system?"
