Congratulations to Steve for making a Rasch based contribution to 
this vexing, perplexing situation.

Perhaps list members might like to read this:
The State of State Standards:
Research Investigating Proficiency Levels in Fourteen States
G. Gage Kingsbury, Allan Olson, John Cronin, Carl Hauser, Ron Houser
Northwest Evaluation Association

You might remember that the NWEA group followed Rasch measurement 
from the outset: George Ingebo thought Wright's preposterous claims 
promised so much, that they could not afford to ignore then - just in 
case he was right.
Anyhow, a nice succinct look at what light the Rasch model might 
shine on the murky NCLB state standards.
