US K-12 Testing and Assessment: 2012 Market Size, Share & Forecast
One of the remarkable features of the US K-12 testing and assessment market is the disproportionate effect of one piece of legislation. The signing of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) in 2001 spawned a new era of assessment-driven public education, where state-by-state performance became subject to a quantitative analysis of test results. Eleven years later, educators are moving beyond “teaching to the test” and are now looking for tools to show an individual student’s progress in a way that can guide instruction in real time. This report addresses the current size of the testing and assessment market and Outsell’s predictions on its future growth, in anticipation of a higher-level analysis due later in 2012.
