Here are a few good resources related to student and teacher assessments:
What Are Education Tests For, Anyway? is from NPR, and gives excellent short and sweet definitions of terms related to assessments. I’m going to add it to A Collection Of “The Best” Lists On Assessment.
In Kentucky, Students Succeed Without Tests is from NPR. I’m adding it to The Best Articles Describing Alternatives To High-Stakes Testing.
Teacher Evaluation: What Do We Want to Measure? is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Effective Student & Teacher Assessments.
