Sick of tests that don’t help your child? You’re not alone.
Higher standards that prepare our students for college and career mean better goals for students, and better tests help parents and teachers know if their kids are on-track to meet them.
Old tests don’t measure critical thinking or problem solving and don’t give a true picture of learning. It’s time we asked students to do more than guess ‘c’ on an answer sheet.
A new generation of tests will:
- Be fair and skill-based.
- Give teachers a true look at achievement, and help them tailor their teaching to their student’s needs.
- Provide parents with feedback on how their child is doing beyond a report card.
- Be comparable from city to city and state to state, ensuring that students are on a a level playing field.
We’ve raised the expectations for our kids, so we need to give students and educators quality, fair tests that will help, not hinder, the education experience.
