Parent Perspectives on Standardized Testing
Parent Chris Stewart has organized an evening for parents to discuss standardized testing. With the changes in the state test and the newness of MAP testing, it is a good time to talk about the issues.
Issues to explain:
- parent education
- goals of testing
- benefits of testing
- costs of testing
- parental rights
- national perspective
Issues for feedback:
- are these the best way to meet the district's academic goals?
- what you might like to see in SPS
- ideas on testing frequency for different age groups
The meeting is Monday, April 4th at Thornton Creek Elementary, from 6-8 p.m.
