Description

Testing forms the bedrock of educational assessment and represents a commitment to high academic standards and school accountability. You can't know where you're going unless you know where you are. But when the financial and emotional stakes associated with standardized tests are disproportionately high, this laudable goal gets distorted. Teachers begin teaching to the test simply to raise scores, often at the expense of more meaningful learning activities. And when the tests are too narrow a measure or aren't properly aligned to standards, they provide little concrete information that teachers and schools can use to improve teaching and learning for individual students.

Customer Reviews

Just what we need...

As a parent and homeschooler, I am discovering valuable information in these videos. Every topic is great! America's education needs a huge overhaul. It saddens me that it seems no one else is watching these videos...I can see on a daily basis that education is not a top priority in America. I will try to visit the website provided, I just hope it's still available. Thank you for the videos!
