This paper provides suggestions and recommendations to state departments and state policy makers for setting consistent standards across grade levels. An argument is made that the new requirement for consistency is sufficiently important to be internalized as an institutional goal, even at the cost of overriding some traditional, standard-setting practices and principles.
