Resource Description
THE TRUTH ABOUT TESTING an Educator’s Call to Action. Popham. Many politicians, school board members and testing companies promote high-stakes testing as the way to measure student learning. Nonsense, says this distinguished educator, explaining how the “teach to the tests” mentality subverts education, producing autotrons rather than critical (let alone deep) thinkers. Interesting that schools in Japan (once the bastion of conformity) are dropping standardized tests, realizing that the future will reward the creative, not the rote learners. Maybe the politicians and testing companies shouldn’t be dictating how professionally trained teachers should teach. #B-10141. Note: We have a limited supply remaining of this title.
