This is the 6th annual report on technology by Education Week and it focuses on computer-based testing. School districts and states are increasingly turning to online testing to meet new requirements of such initiatives as the No Child Left Behind Act. Several states are already using or piloting this method raising several new issues about assessment. This report contains in depth articles on these issues and they include: A Law's Effect, 'Adaptive' Testing, Online Test Prep, Special Education Tools, Classroom Exams, A Changing Market, and Digital Grading. The report also includes sections with state profiles and state-by-state data on school computer use.
