The Brown Center released a report today called “The Algebra Imperative.” The report shows that current national and international math assessments do not adequately measure how well American students are learning algebra.

A quote:

The essay is organized by four sections. The first section describes the current state of affairs in assessing algebra—the national and international tests that Americans rely on to measure progress. Section two presents evidence that the current battery of assessments is inadequate. Section three discusses prospects for remedying the situation. Section four concludes.

A good discussion of this report from the Brookings Institution can be found here.
