In schools where standards based teaching and assessing have been officially implemented, what effects has it had on teacher practice? The purpose of this study was to examine the effects a standards based educational curriculum has had on teacher practice. Data was collected using an anonymous survey. Five hundred and one teachers were sent the survey and there were twenty eight responses. The researcher found a very diverse reaction from teachers with some finding very dramatic changes to their practice, such as addition time needed for preparation, More professional development needed, and less content being taught, while others have not reported significant changes at all.
