Pop Quiz on Standardized Testing. – L. Guisbond

Guisbond, Lisa.  “Pop Quiz on Standardized Testing.” Washington Post.  January 16, 2013.  Retrieved from http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2013/01/16/pop-quiz-on-standardized-testing/

The author, from the non-profit National Center for Fair and Open Testing, put together a six question quiz about the (over) use of standardized tests.

1. What reasons did Garfield High School teachers give for boycotting the Measure of Academic Progress tests?

2. Why did award-winning Florida second-grade teacher Kim Cook (voted teacher of the year by her peers) receive an “unsatisfactory” evaluation that put her job in jeopardy?
