Teachers Refuse to Give Standardized Tests at Seattle High School. – V. Strauss

Strauss, Valarie.  “Teachers refuse to give standardized tests at Seattle High School.”  Washington Post.  January 11, 2013.  Retrieved from: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2013/01/11/teachers-refuse-to-give-standardized-test-at-seattle-high-school/

Almost all teachers at a Seattle HS refuse to give the MAP tests because it is bad for both the students and the teachers.

“Our teachers have come together and agree that the MAP test is not good for our students, nor is it an appropriate or useful tool in measuring progress,” says Kris McBride, who serves as Academic Dean and Testing Coordinator at Garfield.  “Additionally, students don’t take it seriously.  It produces specious results, and wreaks havoc on limited school resources during the weeks and weeks the test is administered.”
