External Audiences for Test-Based Accountability: Accountability:

Little has been written about the interaction of the No Child Left Behind Act with external audiences that have no formal connections with the schools. This study focuses on print journalists and foundation program officers, who frequently use data from schools and districts in their work. The authors summarize the data needs of the two groups and offer advice to producers of performance reports and analyses and to the external consumers of those reports on how to enhance the utility of the data.
