Social Studies Assessment/Accountability Gap:

  • Currently, 12 states test elementary social studies as part of their accountability program (Quality Counts, 2006).
  •  Colorado currently does not collect achievement data on any area of the social studies.
  • Approximately 25 states have some form of social studies testing that vary from Terra Nova to state specific test development. Fourteen states did not return information regarding testing and the remaining 11 did not have tests in any of the social studies area (Council of State Social Studies Supervisors, 2007).
