Part One: Collateral damage of standardized testing
Is the test the only thing? Collateral damage and ripple effect of testing. Students speak about stress and anxiety of testing in schools, "I think one of the most important things that is overlooked is just how you are as a person."
Part Two: Building enthusiasm: Let the data drive what you teach'
There is alway's something to prepare for. Building enthusiasm, showing understanding and creating meaning in the test. What is the test all about? Will the test show the student where to learn more? Can it do this in a timely manner? "let the data drive what you teach."
Part Three: Solutions, and what we can do to change things
Changing what we do as teachers and how students learn. Measuring progress and finding balance. Solution, and what we can do to change it. "I don't know if there is a big answer to the testing question but I certainly know we've swung along ways to doing a little too much testing."
