“A flawed test”. Developed by the NEA.
Schools should be accountable to the public, not to teachers.
While homeschooling our 2 daughters we bacame very good friends with the assistant superintendent of our district.
At one point he was complaining that he had several tests that he wanted to "test the tests" to see if they were any good.
The other administrators and faculty were dead set against this as they were afraid of the results. He had tried to explain to them the purpose was to find out the validity of the tests, not to go on a witch hunt.
Still no go.
When he told me of it, I mentioned we had to PAY 50 bucks a kid each year to have them tested by a certified teacher. We would gladly have them take and critique as many tests as he wanted to try.
Our kids became the most tested kids in the district FOR FREE!
Since they were both at or above grade level, they did very well and had fun critiquing the tests with him.
