"scores are going to be bad and there is going to be hell to pay politically" - Grant Wiggins

"scores are going to be bad and there is going to be hell to pay politically" - Grant Wiggins | Education Leadership | Scoop.it

The harm of local grading in a world of standards: what NAEP reveals (Thoughtlessness part 4)

 

By Grant Wiggins

 

"Once again the recently released NAEP results reveal that American student achievement in writing is far worse than local report cards would have us believe. If the new assessments for Common Core are going to be as demanding as NAEP tests are – a likely bet – then we have a disaster in the making: scores are going to be bad and there is going to be hell to pay politically (since NAEP is not district-level reported and typically flies below the layperson radar)."
