Common Core Could Improve Quality of High School Assessments

"Teachers have radically lost faith in assessment. That, in my judgment, is a substantial crisis," David Coleman, president of the College Board, said during a panel discussion at Brookings. "Because if teachers lose faith in assessment, parents will lose faith in assessment. People trust their teachers."

In fact, only 23 percent of high school teachers believe state-required tests give an accurate picture of student achievement, and only 36 percent say their students take those exams seriously, according to a report by Scholastic and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. More than 10,000 public school teachers in grades K-12 were surveyed for the Foundation's March report.

"We have a need in this country to redeem assessment in the hearts and minds of teachers and parents; otherwise the accountability systems we are building will never have the depth of support they need," Coleman added.

The movement to common assessment gives states an opportunity to build this support by creating innovative exams that truly measure student achievement, experts say. That means moving toward "longer, more thoughtful exams," Coleman said.
