      Motivations for Yearbook
• Concern: there has been insufficient attention paid
  to the central place of the classroom in thinking
  about the role of assessment in education and in
  educational accountability
• Hence: discuss examples of research studies that
  link classroom assessment and accountability in
  multiple ways (Source articles)
• And: offer reflections on these efforts based on the
  data and on their own varied experiences and
  orientations (Commentaries)
