Fewer, Better Tests Can Boost Student Achievement

Fewer, Better Tests Can Boost Student Achievement | CCSS MVBT Resources | Scoop.it
The overall academic performance of U.S. students will never equal that of our toughest international competitors if we continue to focus on high-stakes tests alone, write Marc Tucker, Linda Darling-Hammond, and John Jackson.

 

"The countries that outperform the United States on international exams spend more than we do to measure and encourage these skills with essay tests and teacher-scored projects. And they can afford to do this because they test much less frequently than we do, typically only two or three times during a student's entire school career."
