Resource Description
STANDARDIZED MINDS, The High Price of America’s Testing Culture and What We Can Do to Change It. Sacks. The words “standardized testing” sound innocuous, and may serve as a convenient tool for “tracking performance,” but what are the inherent flaws in such testing, and who profits and who loses in the process? Can one even measure a factor called intelligence or are there multiple intelligences, most of which are not even measured by “standardized” tests? How can teachers, parents and administrators overcome million dollar advertising campaigns launched by publishers and testing companies? What are alternative methods of authentically assessing performance? How do we measure merit that matters? All of these questions and more are addressed in this groundbreaking book. Powerful ideas for overcoming the testing rut in which students and teachers are increasingly stuck. #B-9030.
