Math: "What you test is what you get (WYTIWYG)." | Math | Scoop.it

[Alan Schoenfeld] Meeting the Challenges of Common Core Standards

 

He explained that what you test is what you get (WYTIWYG).

 

Current tests are skill-oriented but Common Core demands more, which it tries to explain with the mathematical process standards. He says that of course content matters (obviously students have to learn the skills of math), but that the real action is in the practices. You can’t just put these on a list and check them off.
