Although this case did not involve a public records act, and only a statute covering student records, we felt that there was sufficient similarity to warrant participating in the case," said ATP Legislative Counsel Alan Thiemann.

Thiemann also noted, "the decision is so crystal clear that it does not even venture into a discussion of the effect on testing in Florida if secure tests were required to be released to parents or students."

Fall 2002 Newsletter [cached]

In early November ATP Executive Director, Dr. William G. Harris, along with ATP's Legislative Counsel, Alan Thiemann, Esq., convened a group of ATP members at Thiemann's office in Alexandria, VA to discuss the Schools Interoperability Framework ("SIF") and its importance to the test publishing community.

Facilitators for the meeting were Tim Magner, Director of SIF and Alan Thiemann.
"During the past several months, ATP has been involved in discussions with the Software and Information Industry Association ("SIIA") which administers the SIF -- a project which we believe could have major ramifications for test publishers - both of educational and clinical products used in schools," Thiemann explained. He noted that, "the SIF is an 'open standards group' - which means that the technical standards it is creating are available for everyone to use without charge.
However, ATP believes that it is important to provide its members with a coordinated avenue for participating in the evolution of the final SIF standards - to assure that they meet the needs of as many test publishers as possible and will work for as many products as possible," Thiemann said
As a result, he reported that he (Thiemann) and Harris have been discussing the standards and the process for adopting them with SIF's Director, Tim Magner.
As part of an invitation sent out to ATP members, Thiemann provided a summary of relevant areas of the proposed SIF standards and information on how they are likely to be used. He added that it also provides input obtained from an SIF Instructional Services Working Group which met in September, and included a discussion of how the SIF standards will dovetail with the No Child Left Behind Act.
Thiemann noted that there are two main SIF documents that need to be reviewed: SIF Implementation Specification, dated May 22, 2002; and SIF Draft Data Objects Specification, dated July 31, 2002.
He said the Implementation Specification represents the second revision of this document.
Thiemann also noted that there are several objects in other work areas that may be relevant to test publishers as well.
Thiemann also noted that, "although the IMS standards are lengthy, they were developed by participants with knowledge about assessments in areas other than K-12 and thus contain many elements that may be necessary for ATP-member assessment products.

Test publishers respond to parental consent Alan Thiemann, Legislative Counsel
In order to protect test publishers against the unscrupulous copying and redistribution of their products, ATP representatives, including ATP Executive Director William G. Harris, ATP Counsel Alan Thiemann and Jay Urwitz (Counsel for The Psychological Corporation), met with Congressman Tiarht, his staff and Subcommittee staff, to clarify the precise scope of this new access right. (Continued, see Parental consent, page 2)During these meetings, ATP clarified that parents should be able to read and understand the appropriate test being requested and discuss it with qualified school personnel, but should not have the right to copy, photocopy, transcribe or take notes about the contents of any testing materials that are subject to a copyright or licensing agreement.

Mr. Thiemann presented the Antitrust Policy Statement, noting that since competitors are in room the policy ensures that neither PCATS nor individual members violate the anti-trust laws by engaging in prohibited acts such as collective discussions about pricing, boycotts, division of territories or anti-competitive practices. He also discussed the Intellectual Property Policy, explaining that representatives of companies need make disclose of any IP in order to ensure that the Technical Committees are aware of all their options and do not draft standards that require patented elements without considering other options. He went on to remind members to use the disclosure form if reporting on IP that is either owned, applied for or contemplated, or to simply notify PCATS if it is IP owned by another company. He also concluded his comments by reminding everyone that the Committee
