Test-based accountability policies aim to increase student achievement for all students and reduce achievement gaps by improving classroom instruction.

There were many similarities in educators' perceptions, both positive and negative, across different types of schools; however, educators from high-poverty schools tended to have more negative perceptions about the policies than did educators from low-poverty schools.The majority of the teachers (29) at both the high- and low-poverty schools said the pacing guides and curriculum maps were ... for grades 3, 4, and 5 specified which objectives should be taught in mathematics, reading, and writing each week.
