Testing Talk is a new site designed to solicit feedback from educators on this next generation of state standardized testing.
I’m not quite clear on how it’s different from the Assessment Advisor, developed by the National Education Association (you can read my post about it at NEA Partners With Teach Plus & Creates Online Rating System For Student Assessments).
I do have to say that the committee of educators behind Testing Talk is pretty darn impressive, so I’m sure they’ve developed a rationale and a plan that does not duplicate the work of the Assessment Advisor. I’ll certainly be giving them my feedback on the tests!
