Resource Description
THE HEART OF THE MATTER, Using Standards and Assessment to Learn. Falk. Standardized tests show what students do not know, but what about what they can do? This book outlines methods for assessing learning without the inherent problems of standardized tests. Provides convincing arguments against the prevailing “teach to the tests” mentality, a process that diverts critical resources away from the classroom and to profit-based testing corporations (the average standardized test costs over $300/student to administer, far more than the individual teacher gets for books and expendables for each student). We need to distinguish between “standards” and “standardization,” avoid stifling teachers, and stop sending limited funds to distant, profit driven testing corporations. Time to test a new path. #B-9161.
