The education of today's students takes place in an era of high stakes testing and accountability. This is also a time of great advances in learning theory and educational innovations, particularly in the use of technology. This paper studies the interaction between the accountability and testing movement and innovations aimed at improving the quality of education, specifically on reform efforts in educational technology and gifted education. It synthesizes evidence of ways current federal and state accountability policies constrain and limit educational improvements. Can one conclude that high stakes accountability policies are inhibiting innovations in education on a national scale?
