Hi Linda,

Thanks for writing to T2T.  As Cyntia mentioned, your request has been made 
public, so hopefully others will contact you.  

Thought I'd also mention that the National Council of Teachers of 
Mathematics (NCTM) has selected Assessment as NCTM's Focus of the Year for 
2006-2007, so I'd suggest keeping watch in the NCTM journals and their 
website for articles of interest.  A good place to start thinking about 
your topic, if you haven't already done so, would also be to check out 
NCTM's currently available assessment materials:  The Classroom Assessment 
for School Mathematics, K-12 Series (has handbooks and cases and discussion 
questions for various grade bands), and the Mathematics Assessment Samplers 
Series that gives a wide range of sample assessment items for Gr. 3-5 and 6-
8, if those happen to be of interest to you.

Good luck as you pursue your studies,

 -Ralph, for the T2T service
