I agree with A.Perry. Benchmarks and other high stakes testing are far to infrequent. Teachers should collaborate more and decide on assessments that can best measure student progress. In this manner issues can be caught and adressed in a timely manner.

Teacher Accountability

You mentioned that with the Envision system, the teachers are deeply involved in the creation and evaluation of student work. I completely believe that the accountability becomes more personal to teachers as they support their students. Once counties realize that High Stakes Tests are just not cutting it, they will implement more formative tests that empower teachers to actually teach. Nice post!
