|Abstract:||Barriers to high quality learning experiences are often indirectly attributed to policy, such as mandated testing, yet learning scientists seldom engage the policy arena. This study presents early-stage design-based implementation research that aims to change policy. Interactions between legislators and a collaboratory constituted to investigate performance assessments are analyzed to better understand barriers and opportunities. We found differences along party lines that can be interpreted as barriers and constraints, suggesting directions for our ongoing work.|
