A group is organizing a forum on parent perspectives about standardized testing. They are looking for a couple of people (teachers and parents) who support standardized testing in SPS, namely MAP and HSPE. They are looking for authentic dialog on this important issue.
What benefits have you seen for your child? How has it guided your thinking as a parent in how your child is doing in school? Happy about the feedback from your child's teacher?
If you might be interested in being part of a panel that is supportive of the testing currently offered (thanks but they have plenty of the other side of the coin), please contact Chris Stewart, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Also, if you have opted your child out of testing, that would be an interesting experience to share as well. (I did opt my sons out of most of the WASL but that is years back now.)
