We hear about it everywhere…The test. Whatever state you’re in might change what test you’re talking about, but it follows us. It infects our teaching, our conversations, and even how we view our jobs.
But is standardized testing as bad as so many make it out to be? Let’s find out.
Jeff Farely, a Texas principal, has a lot to say on the matter. He tackles why standardized testing exists, how teachers should think about it, and spends a considerable amount of time unpacking the loaded language we use when talking about “the test.”
You’ll want to listen to this episode, and then share it with every educator you can. Jeff gives us an insight much needed in our job.
